6. You might want to edit a bit of that. Most Muslims I know who have left their religion did not adopt

another one, but became atheists.

Some became Christians, but most said they wanted nothing more to do with religion as it was letting people deny their humanity with others. Whether this young man was born into a religion or not, he should not have been killed for it. Freedom of religion or no religion is freedom of the mind and it does not get much more basic than that.

His eyes show that he had seen a lot in his life. Yet he still had - faith? - in the cause of humanity. Yes, I'd call him a true humanist.

Just as Raoul Wallenberg, when he is said to have saved the lives of either 20,000 or 100,000 Jews from the Third Reich. But he was later said to be arrested by Soviet forces and never seen again. His family has asked Obama to ask Putin in his visit today for proof of his fate since they suspect the Russians know.

Another source said 20K instead of 100K. IDK.
