Sunday Reflections

Sunday, September 12, 2010

Just want to give a hearty hello to Seeker of Happiness's new followers!
Glad you have you here. Feel free to leave a comment and introduce yourself!

Every Sunday, I do a feature called "Sunday Reflections" where I post something I find inspirational (and ye be warned- usually pretty Christian). With yesterday being 9/11, I was feeling pretty passionate about all of the controversy surrounding the building of an Islamic Community Center two blocks from ground zero. I was confused because I had a lot of friends who I respect spouting a lot of things in opposition of this community center being built. I dug in and did a bit of research, and I honestly cannot find one reason why this center should be stopped.

I got pretty heated in my little heart, yesterday- really wondering if we learned ANYTHING from the tragic events nine years ago.

I was pretty determined to blog about my opinion today, but then I found this video. It's about a man who is a 9/11 survivor and how, through Christ, he was able to make his life better, and not worse. It's about 9 minutes long, but VERY worth it.

In the end, I realized that we, as a nation, just need to get back to the basics, like Victor did. Spend time with our families, and grow closer to the truths in our religions.


Okay, Okay. I tried to keep my opinion to myself this whole blog post but I just can't...

For those of you so ignorantly angry at the Islam religion and Muslims in general, just remember this:

Islam is to THE TALIBAN
Christianity is to THE KKK

That's all. God Bless.


  1. AMEN sister. Perfect comparison.

  2. So proud of you Carrie. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints how could anyone who knows of the persecution of our founders want to condemn the rights of others religous freedoms. Let them worship how, where, or what they may!


I like to hear all of the beautiful things you have to say.
