A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.
Every morning I wake up to find messages like these sent to me…Why? Well simply because I run a blog online about Israel. Even if I ran a blog about Syria or Iran with the dictatorship and tyranny going on in those countries, I would never get messages like these.
These threats and comments don’t just attack my homeland and my people, but also me. “I hope you die tonight inshallah” and “dogs are better than Israelis” is just an example of the amount of hate that people have for Israel and the jewish people. No matter your views or opinions on the subject, no human being should be treated this way. By saying these things, only more hate and negative energy is spread into this world. Nothing good comes of it.
I write this today, so we may learn a lesson: to NEVER become one of these people, never let our hearts be filled with so much hatred so that we never treat people lesser than us.
So if you are one of these people, please start spreading some much needed love instead of hate into this world, and maybe then can we start to live in peace.
As always, peace & love.
I don’t want to look back in five years time and think, ‘We could have been magnificent, but I was afraid.’ In 5 years I want to tell of how fear tried to cheat me out of the best thing in life, and I didn’t let it.
