We have used the Devil as an excuse for our problems for decades…so we set up all these Churches and Mosques in hope that they will protect us from him…the Devil. Failing to realize that the devil we fight so aggressively is US..you and me.
We are the devils who did not fix the road so the poor kid driving through did not see the light pole before he crashed!
We are the devils who did not maintain an aircraft so hundreds of passengers plunged to their death.
We are the devils who stood by and watched as innocent teenagers were beating and burnt alive.
We are the devils we pray against everyday, us, not some meta-physical being who we blame for anything bad that happens in our country but us.
And it’s time for us to stop blaming the devil and start taking responsibility for our actions and lack of actions. It’s time for us to stop focusing on dodging Hell, while our country is a living Hell for many. It is time for us to start turning our prayers into action. Because a nation is not great because of the number of prayers it says, or the number of churches or mosques it builds. A nation is great because of the number of times it fights for the preyed, speaks up for the voiceless and caters for the helpless. That’s what makes a nation great…
