So if you guys may or may not know, there are currently those who live in Israel who are facing terror from having rockets shot at them. The whole thing has brought a big controversy: Who's the good guys, who's the bad guys, who's lying to make themselves look good in front of the rest of the world?
The answers are not that simple. We see grief coming from both sides. But what happens when you add faces to otherwise faceless countries? What if you actually KNOW people who live in countries under distress?
I know of at LEAST three Sonic fans in Israel,
Two of them, Ksenia and Nastya, are Sonadow fans.
They're all feeling the threat of rockets being shot at them. They're scared, they just want things to end. And yet we got people on the internet who just want to CRUCIFY anyone who lives in Israel. Its extremely sad that people don't think of the real human beings like these people when they say such cruel comments. Maybe its time for the world to hear more of THEIR personal accounts, and how they feel about the situation going on in their country.
So here's what I want to do: I want to make a call to all Sonic fans who live in strife-filled countries. Not just Israel, but countries where they are feeling oppression, experience war situations (past and present). If you are, or know of someone who lives in any of these areas, please show them this journal, and please, comment! I want to hear your story. How do you feel about the situation? What are your thoughts on the opposing forces causing havoc in your life? How do you feel when people in the media and the internet makes cruel remarks about your situation like you mean nothing to them?
I want to give Sonic fans in these countries a voice to be heard. Please speak up!
