Betty MacDonald fan club honor member and Charlie

Betty MacDonald fan club fans,

we got a very intelligent and touching message from our beloved Betty MacDonald fan club member Mary Holmes.

Dearest Betty MacDonald fan club fans,

i was horrified by the terrorist attack in Paris.
I am horrified by all terrorist attacks. I cannot see what benefits for themselves the terrorists think they are getting. It is good that the "Je suis Charlie group" had the courage to react the way they did. 
I aim someday, when I have time, to read the Koran as I want to see what is written in it that justifies the cruelty.  Mind you, killing is nothing new. In the past there have been so many executions caused by not obeying the dogma of various religions, massed political killings all over the world and all wars. Perhaps one is sad because one had believed that mankind was becoming more rational. 

There is too much hate in our world. Hate of people with other beliefs, from other countries and cultures and even people who are more wealthy and more successful. But we should realize that we are all dependent on each other. I took the following from Facebook:

 Stop the hatred!

However it is not all bad. 
One has to be thankful for the doctors and nurses who had the courage to go to Africa and help the people with Ebola and other charities like the Red Cross and all the caring organizations who go at great danger to themselves to help people in trouble.

Best wishes,
