A popular Danish proverb reminds us not to lose a sense of proportion. In the hype of the past weekend, this is an important point to remember…
…As we try to consider how we can move forward from this tragedy, we must educate ourselves on the cultural barriers present in Denmark instead of letting this man beat us. Something needs to be changed.
We, as a society, should work hard to address these issues hand-in-hand with Denmark’s Muslim community. And likewise, the Muslim community in Denmark should reach out to one another to prevent these tragedies before they accelerate into catastrophes…
….Prevention is better than cure, so let us consider it a wake-up call and work on building a sense of cultural understanding and compatibility in this wonderful country.
