The kid has listened to Black-Eyed Pea’s song, “Where is the love?” and can even sing it. The part where they rapped the word ‘terrorism’ again and again is imitated by him. But he never really get the full impact of it. They are just mere words.
what’s wrong with the world mamma
people livin’ like they-ain’t got no mammas
I think the whole world’s addicted to the drama
only attracted to things that’ll bring the trauma
overseas yeah we’re trying stop terrorism
but we still got terrorist here livin
In the U.S.A the big C.I.A
(full lyrics here)
So, mom and kid had a conversation on terrorism with references made to 911 and the bombings in London.
Son : Why they want to simply kill?
Mom : Because they are very angry.
Son : But they are stupid right? Why they also get themselves killed? (references to suicide bombers)
Mom : Because they have too much anger. Probably, when they were small, their mommies and daddies were killed by others. Probably, they lived a very hard life and they see their own country being destroyed?
Mom : So, that’s why I told you. When someone pick a fight with you, you fight back and he fight back and you fight back. There will be no end to the fighting until one person get injured. This is what happened.
End of conversation.
Points to keep in mind:
1) Never bring God into the matter.
2) Never blame religion
because these are all due to one party hurting another and retaliation continues.
