If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you'll know that I wrote about Remembrance Day, and how we should not forget those who gave of themselves so that we could have the freedom and peace we have, today.
Well, at least, the freedom we have today. It seems we truly do not have the peace that we had a generation or more ago, here in Canada.
While I was on Facebook (FB), I read and shared this article by The Toronto Sun entitled, Lest only some of us forget: http://m.torontosun.com/2014/11/10/lest-only-some-of-us-forget. If you took the time to read this article, you'll be aware that not everyone wanted to honour those who fought for our freedom. :(
Did this surprise me? Not really.
After all, not everyone is even sad about we Canadians being attacked, here in our homeland, and having some Canadian soldiers hurt, and/or murdered.
While watching the suppertime newscast on CBC, I watched a video, where there were some veterans speaking at an event where there were school children. Some of the children were standing behind the veterans.
As our national anthem, O Canada was being sung, some of the children were singing along with veterans, and others. Some of the children, were not singing.
Does this surprise you?
At first, it did surprise me. Until I realized that the children not singing our Canadian national anthem, were Muslims.
I must admit, this upset me, in a mild sort of way. Yet, it truly wasn't shocking to me.
It proved to me, and to anyone else who noticed this, that it seems Muslims are not caring for anyone here in Canada. Or, for our country, even.
If they did, I believe they would have sung our Canadian national anthem, along with fellow students, teachers, adults, and veterans who were at this event. Yet, they did not sing.
In my opinion, Muslim children are being taught and brought up by Islamic parents who are teaching them to not be loving or supportive of anyone who is an infidel (anyone who is not Muslim).
Possibly, these Muslim children are being brought up with the idea of eventually having violence against us infidels. Truly, only God knows... and their parents and/or other relatives.
Think this is silly?
Maybe you should read the following articles that I saved, and had not posted over the last couple of years.

On p. D1 of The Windsor Star, Tuesday, April 10, 2012 this article was printed, 40 killed in Nigeria Easter slaughter:
As you can see, Muslims are being violent in many countries. Almost all over the world. Including even here in Canada, now.
If Islam was not teaching Muslims to be violent against infidels, why would this be happening?
Okay. I realize that some people reading this may have an idea that my thinking is against Muslims.
It is not.
I am not against Muslims. Just as I am not against people of other religions.
Please remember that people of other religions are not hurting and/or killing people all over the world, the way Muslims are. So, there is not much need to speak out against those who are not trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.
No matter who they are, whenever I speak with people, I plant those seeds for Christ, that God commanded us to do. I do this, to be obedient to God. And, to show others that I love them.
Thinking of this, reminded me of James 1:22, "But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves."
My friend, I pray that you are doing what God commanded us to do. I pray that you are planting those seeds for Christ, too.
If you are doing so, you are a doer of the word, and not a hearer, only... who would be deceiving your own self.
For if you are a doer... you will be blessed by God.
Until next time...
