This will be the only thing I say about Syria (for now, leastways).

I’m far from a war-monger, but when I see a wannabe dictator wantonly killing children just to see if his sarin gas works properly, I not only feel that we have a duty to do something about it, but a MORAL OBLIGATION.

And, yes, an atheist is speaking about moral obligations. Weird, right?

Anyway, we most definitely have our own problems here in the United States, but what kind of people does that make us if we sit around bitching and moaning about our “problems” in light of what is going on?

"Oh, no! I want to live on my own but I can’t! I have to resort to living with my parents at age 30! FML!"

"I can’t afford to eat at a GOOD restaurant today. I guess I have to resort to McDonald’s value menu…"

"I lost my job! Now I have to resort to getting an unemployment check and food stamps."

This is what the Internet likes to call a “first-world problem”. Hell, I’m sitting here with absolutely no food in my own house. But… I wonder what those thrashing, convulsing Syrian men, women, and children were worried about at the moment their lives so unmercifully ended?

The minute we start thinking of humanity’s problems as “that country’s problem” just because it may not be happening directly to our fellow countrymen (yet), we become a part of the overall problem. We have to stop factionalizing humanity via religion, politics, sexuality, nationality, etc. Period.

And people like to accuse us of “playing god” every time we intervene in foreign affairs. Excuse me, but it’s not playing god to give aid — even if it IS aid by force — to people who need our help. Shit, judging from history, it is the exact OPPOSITE of playing god.

Aside from that and the moral obligations I previously mentioned, we need to get out in front of such a threat. Sure, it may lead to “another 9/11”, but it is better that it happen because we fought to try and prevent it than because we sat around and did nothing until it was too late (like 9/11 itself).

I’m just as tired of war as the next person, but as POTUS I would not let my exasperation for a couple wars started under false pretenses by the guy before me dictate whether or not I lend aid to a country that actually needs it, even if my constituents found it an unpopular decision. I am once again proud of my man Barack for showing his compassion instead of his complacency.

Either way, I don’t look at this in the same way most people do, I know. Maybe I’m ahead of my time or revolutionary in my thinking, but I’m not a citizen of America. I live IN America; I live ON Earth. One is an address; the other is my home. The Syrians are my brothers and sisters, my family… If I’m not willing to help them, who would?

"Oh shut up. Every time it rains, it stops raining. Every time you hurt, you heal. After darkness, there is always light and you get reminded of this every morning but still you choose to believe that the night will last forever. Nothing lasts forever. Not the good or the bad. So you might as well smile while you’re here."

I Wrote This For You   (via exoticwild)

Awesome sentiment.
