September 11 Posed a Cultural Dilemma

There are some situations that can really disappear from one’s life, but there are some that no matter how much you try, it is not possible. There are things that happen in life that make you wonder: “Should I really forgive the person or should I hate them more?” Apart from the person, the other thing to consider is if a certain race or religion is really worth it to or should they banished.

It’s ten years later, after the September 11 attacks, but the memories still remain fresh in my mind. I cannot forgive the person who caused the accident that left my little brother without legs. The more I look at him, the more I suffer inside and the more I feel like not forgiving the mastermind of the whole plan. There are several things that I learned from the September 11 activities. Some of the things you can learn is actually having an unshakable spirit, the power to forgive and how to look at a person from another race or religion. After the incident, I had a negative attitude towards the Muslim counterparts because of what they did. My association with them deteriorated.

There was the negative talk that all of them are terrorists. Ten years later, I have slowly learned that not all of them are bad. They are actually very good people and there still exist some with good hearts. I have learned to forgive those who hurt me even in the worst way possible. It is all in the power of forgiveness that will create unity among everyone in the nation. This way, we will continue improving the country and promoting brother hood. I still reside in the where I was, though I have had many experiences of shaken world views of whether to hate a certain culture or forgiveness. The most important thing to do is to forgive.
