For all you Facebook humanitarians who suddenly feel the need to stand up for the victims of violence in other countries by discounting the tragedy that occurred in Connecticut today, then know you're an ignorant fool who lacks humanity and common sense. Instead of posting about it online, try sending an e-mail to a parent who sent their five year old child to school not knowing they wouldn't be coming home. Make sure you let them know how those children are more deserving of life then their kids.
The life of a child is a life of a child, no matter where he/she dies. There is a time and place for everything in our lives, and now is a time to mourn the tragedy that happened today. If you're so concerned about human rights, go volunteer with organizations in your local communities who are dealing with issues such as hunger and the like. The Sunnah of the Prophet (SAW) was to first care for those around him. When he (SAW) arrived in Madinah, he didn't say "We need to go avenge the blood of our brethren in Makkah," rather, he commanded the Muslim community to spread peace, feed the people, establish families, and pray. Get your priorities right. No one is dismissing the children who've died in Syria, Palestine, Africa, Pakistan, etc, we pray for all children equally.
It's hypocritical, foolish, and immature to sit in front of your computer screen and let the world know "let us not be distracted by today's events of what's happening in the rest of the world." If that's your attitude, then you need to get the hell off of Facebook/Twitter/Gmail, go talk to people, and learn to be some what of a human being.
