With all the recent debates and criticisms to and fro I think we should never forget we are all humans. We share the same planet, we share the same dreams, and we share the human capacity for sacrifice.
This article in Arab news describes how a Saudi student lost his life. Mashari Abdul Mohsen Al-Siraihi drowned in Ohio while trying to save his friend, George Rairesheid III.
Abdul did manage to save the son, Micheal, brought him to shore and then went back for the father, but both men perished.
It is so sad that they didn’t make it.
Mashari Abdul Mohsen Al-Siraihiwas flown back to Jeddah and buried there amongst a large crowd of mourners.
Maybe we should look more at people like these when thinking of other countries and other nationalities. Maybe we should keep in the forefront of our thoughts, that we really are all family on one great planet.
