I’ve said often that I have no problem with those who want peace in the Middle East but don’t wish to assign blame. Especially when their function doesn’t require it. Katy Perry responded to a young Israeli boy on Twitter asking for her prayers with the following tweet: “I am! My prayers are for you guys tonight, SHALOM!!! RT”
For this I say Thank You Katy!
When attacked for it she responded with the following message: “A kid asked me to pray for him and I did. I don’t support ANY side of violence in ANY place for ANY reason.”
Just as I commended the Pope for praying to God that the violence would end, I commend and thank Katy Perry for her sentiment. If everyone felt as she does and spread the love around evenly, the world would be just fine. Some people who claim to be humanitarians could learn from her. Caring about people means caring about all people and Katy clearly gets that.
