Remember Chris Herbert?
He’s a former British soldier who lost his leg in a bombing in Iraq.
Last year he wrote a Facebook post that was shared more than 44,000 times, railing against people who assumed he would hate Muslims for what happened to him. He doesn’t.
He knows that his injury had very little to do with religion and everything to do with hatred.
That post is apparently no longer on Facebook, but somebody had the foresight to save it, and here it is:
The message is very simple: Don’t give in to hate, people.
When you do, the bad guys win.
(With apologies to Mr Herbert for putting him in the spotlight again.)
