Way to go, Zuckerberg, Obama, the Mohamed family, and so many others for helping a 14-year-old boy learn the true lessons to be learned from such a terrible incident. Kindness and compassion can make all the difference.
Thankfully, Texas police have decided not to charge a 14-year-old Muslim boy wrongfully arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school.
Officials at MacArthur High School in Irving alerted police because they thought the device was a “hoax bomb”.
Ahmed Mohamed’s arrest has been sharply criticised in many quarters
Ahmed told reporters it was “very sad” that his teacher thought his clock was a threat.
“I built a clock to impress my teacher but when I showed it to her she thought it was a threat to her. I’m very sad that she got the wrong impression of it.”
Ahmed’s father Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed, who is originally from Sudan, praised his son’s ingenuity, saying he fixes everything around the house, including his father’s phone and computer.
“He’s a very smart, brilliant boy and he said he just wanted to show himself to the world,” he said.
