In Palestine, Afghanistan and Syria innocent children and teachers were killed in schools because of the wars.
There is no war in the United States but twenty children and six teachers were killed in an elementary school in the United States on Friday. (Please click here for 26 People Died in Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, Conn., Mass Shooting- Photos, Videos)
A medical examiner, Dr. H. Wayne Carver said at a news conference Saturday the deaths are classified as homicides; saying that he believes “everybody was hit more than once.”
Why must this happened?
Now, the United States of America seems to be facing a very big problem – mass shooting.
It happened everywhere in public places, cinema, malls, schools and lots of other places that should be safe from this kind of disaster.
I am very sad especially because I am also a kid and I know that there is nothing much that kids could do to protect ourselves in such situations.
I wonder why that happens again and again.
Maybe the freedom of owning guns in America, allowed some people to use the guns for killing other people.
But why must they killed other people, the people who they didn’t even know?
And is it the right thing to let people own guns freely?
Owning guns means that they can use them any time and any where; even for mass shootings.
May be the problems started because there is too much freedom and human rights.
May be some people might think that it is their rights to do what ever they want to do with their guns; including mass killing.
Is all this fair for children like me?
I don’t think so.
How about our rights as children, should kids carry guns too to protect ourselves like adults?
I guess America has too much freedom when too much freedom is not always good.
Americans are very proud of their freedom and liberty.
“My country ‘tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty…”
“…From every mountain side,
Let the freedom ring.”
So people are always fighting for their rights and freedom in everything without thinking about other people’s rights.
They may become selfish and had forgotten about good values especially of respecting others.
So, too much freedom is not always good.
And to the Malaysians who support the oppositions parties especially PKR fighting for total freedom, and look at the United States as an ideal example, please think about all these.
If they follow United States of America in fighting for freedom and human rights, this is what that will happen to Malaysia later on.
Total freedom seems to be a nice idea, but is it really good for all of us, our communities and our country?
I am very sad and sorry for all the victims’ families and friends.

On Sunday, August 4, 2012 there was another mass shooting in the United States.
The shooter, Wade Micheal Page was shot dead by the police.
The tragedy happened at a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, south of Milwaukee.
6 people were killed in the incident and four others were injured.
It was reported that this happened because the shooter is a white supremacists.
Page played guitar and sang for white power bands like End Apathy and Definite Hate.
He sang about getting rid of the enemies of the white race and through his Internet postings, he told others to do the same.
Violence and hate is part of the culture of ‘white power music’ and these people hate the coloured and the black people.
Because of human rights and freedom, ‘white power music’ that spread violence and hate is allowed.
So, too much freedom and human rights are not always good.
And this is why we must not watch or listen to anything that has violence because we may get influence to do bad things.
On Friday July 20, 2012, a man killed 12 people and injured 59 others during the ’Batman – The Dark Knight Rises’ premiere at a mall in Aurora, Colorado.
I guess the United States should not let people buy gun freely.

Anwar Ibrahim claims that he fights for the people, freedom and human rights.
But is he really fighting for the people, freedom and human rights?
Demi Rakyat wrote that Anwar said, “Rakyat jangan jadi bodoh, (mesti) merdekakan rakyat. Tidak ada maknanya Islam itu, apabila rakyat tidak ada kebebasan.”
He is telling the people not to be stupid and that the people need to be freed and Islam has no meaning without people’s freedom.
So my questions are:
Who are the people who are stupid and why are they stupid?
Who are the people who needed to be freed by him?
Islam has no meaning without people’s freedom; is Anwar referring to the idea of Liberalism and Pluralism?
People in Malaysia are free to support any political parties, so why is Anwar talking about people need to be freed?
Does Anwar think that people who do not support him as stupid and not free to make the choice?
Is human rights only means supporting Anwar and people who support the government are not free and stupid?
So, how about the rights of the people to support the government?
Does Anwar think that if one wants freedom he must only support PR?
Anwar’s human rights idea is just the same like the LGBT groups who protested at Cick-fil-A restaurants; please click here: ‘Chick-fil-A Hit by Gay Protesters’.
In Islam there is no total freedom, we have to follow the rules in everything we do; the people who practice total freedom in Islam are the Libralist and Pluralist and it is against the teaching of Islam.

On August 3, 2012, groups of gay rights activists and their supporters protested outside some Chick-Fil-A restaurants in the United States.
They were angry because last month Dan Cathy, the president of the chicken restaurant chain, voiced his opposition to gay marriage.
One restaurant in the Los Angeles suburb of Torrance was sprayed overnight with graffiti that read: ‘Tastes Like Hate’.
They claimed that what they were fighting for human rights.
Is this how human rights should be to them?
So what about the rights of Dan Cathy and others who do not support the protesters’ ideas?
I cannot understand people who fight for human rights but cannot accept that other people have their rights too.
Is forcing others to agree with them a part of human rights?
So in this case, who really do not support the human rights?
If they are unhappy, why can’t they just write about it to Dan Cathy, the newspapers, in their blogs or facebooks?
I am sad to see adults behaving this way.
It is like teaching kids to fight back whenever they do not agree with their parents, teachers and others.
Here are some pictures of the incident:
