I was indifferent to the countless terrorist attacks and the crimes around the world. The only thing I cared about was the ongoing of patriarchy and misogyny around the world because it is the only thing I have really experienced and have been witness to. And so I know what it is like.
But today, after the fire at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, I care as equally about crimes and terrorist attacks. The cause of the fire still remains unknown, but I spent the whole day enormously sullen. And I was baffled at how people could get on with their lives like nothing in the world has happened. But then again, that is how I used to be too.
I thought about the dozens of countries that go through similar events, except theirs are on a daily basis.I am saddened that we live in a world like so. Also, I sort of got to thinking that terrorism does not have only to do with bombings and hijacks and massacres. I think, all sorts of crimes are terrorism. Rapes, murderers, domestic violence. So yeah, terrorists are all around us. Yes, terrorism is to do with a political motives, I understand that. But if things are put into perspective, the political aspect is looking to better the country, and the country is its people, and so terrorism is done to the people. As is criminal activity.
But that’s just my view.
