Boston

As citizens of the world, we get our news from BBC or Al Jazeera.  We know that explosions that kill people happen all over the world all the time.  More explosions.  More people killed.  Here in the US, some would say, we go totally overboard crazy about a single incident with far less loss of life...


Here's my thought about this.  May we always go totally overboard crazy about every single life lost to senseless violence.  We're not doing it nearly enough.  


We should be ape-shit crazy about each and every life ended in any way that's wrong.  


A little boy killed in Afghanistan should have the same value as a little boy killed in the US.  EVERYONE should lose their shit over it.

I'm sure Selena Gomez is a cute girl but I should not look at Yahoo for news and see whatever she's doing at this time.  I'm thinking it would be a really good idea to wake up.

So well said!! I agree...someone killed overseas deserves just as much attention as when it happens here...I cannot imagine what people have to go through that deal with this very thing EVERY day of their lives...
