What if Bin Laden,

What if Osama Bin Laden had used his popularity and power to do good in this world? Would he have gone far? Would he have found the support he received in destruction?

What if Bin Laden’s brilliance had been noticed when he was younger, and it was nourished and encouraged. He might have found a cure for a malicious illness by now, or maybe even invented flying cars!

What if his experience in Afghanistan had taught him about the cruel side of humanity, and he made it his mission to expose all of the injustice being done in this world… 

What if just as he had helped rid Afghanistan from the Russian invasion, he helped rebuild the country…

What if instead of destroying the Bamian Buddha statues, he chose to protect and preserve culture and art….

What if instead of being the mastermind behind flying planes into a building, he instructed his supporters to hijack a plane and throw flowers on  people  (yes, this image is a bit hippie to me, too), or distribute food and blankets to needy people. 

What if instead of sacrificing the lives of innocent people, he reminded people of  humanity and tolerance…

What if instead encouraging Sunnis to kill Shia’s, he reminded them that they are both Muslims…

What if instead of killing non-Muslims and all those who subscribe to beliefs other than his, he showed kindness, even to those who lacked mercy and compassion in their hearts.

What if …..

The world would have been a better place…

But he didn’t.

He chose the path of destruction and hate…
