Okay People

The age-old saying “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should”, has obviously been lost on the “free” news outlets that have decided to print and reprint images of the Prophet Muhammad, resulting in disbelief and outrage in several Muslim communities. Make no mistake, however, that this action has little to do with free speech and everything to do with bad form. When one commits an instance of bad form, one should apologize. Also make no mistake that the violence attributed to the aforementioned printing and reprinting has very little to do with the images published and everything to do with people that choose to materialize their justifiable disbelief and outrage into violent acts. The responsibility for any violent act lies squarely on the actor. When one willfully chooses to manifest his pain as violence, he should cease and reflect.

It is now time for an apology and reflection.
