Dahir Adan (Crossroads Mall Incident) and Salman Abedi (Manchester Suicide Bomber): What Do They Have In Common?

In 2016, Dahir Adan was shot to death by an off-duty police officer,
After stabbing strangers in Crossroads Mall with a box-cutter,
In 2017, Salman Abedi was partying and smoking weed,
Ending his life wearing a suicide vest,

What do they have in common?

Both opposite of religious,
Partied, drank alcohol, smoked weed,
Rarely visited the mosque,
Only until they were radicalized,
Did they show interest,

Proper misfits,
Didn’t feel like they belonged,
Searched for meaning,
Listened to a sick preacher,

Should we blame Christianity,
When Christians bomb,
Planned Parenthood,

What is the point?

Both men died,
Not a single apology,
Prayer or hand extended,
Dahir and Salman’s family,
Deserve love and support,
