The World Goes Crazy….Again

Today, the US was shaken again. Some COWARD decided the Boston Marathon was the perfect venue for his/their petulant pyrotechnics. This was NOT an acceptable militant stand against corrupt government, such as took place in Tennessee in 1964, when both sides were adults and aware of the possible consequences of their actions. This was a TERRORIST ATTACK that wounded, maimed and MURDERED innocent people. This was an echo of McVeigh’s attack on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 95. This wasn’t the SOns of Liberty dumping tea into Boston Harbor in 1773. This was along the lines of Eric Rudolph’s pipe bombing of the Centennial Olympic Park in July of 96.

Cowards. That is what they are, nothing but twisted, sick, COWARDS. They don’t care who they hurt, as long as they get what they want. Which may be nothing more than media coverage. Prove they did it, flip a switch, and move on….don’t make them martyrs.

And while I am on that topic…limit the media coverage. If there are no new facts, go back to regular programing. Don’t keep showing the same horrendous footage over and over, or theorize for hours on air as to who and why. It doesn’t help. In fact, it makes it worse. I have a 14 year old daughter. She is likely to have nightmares tonight, even though we didn’t keep the television on for the entire report. She saw enough. She saw pools of blood in front of blown-out windows in one of her favorite cities in the world. She knows how easy it was for a COWARD to murder, maim and wound innocent people gathered for a good time, watching the Boston Marathon and celebrating Patriot’s Day.

I do not pray as most people do, but there is a candle lit on my altar for the victims, the families, the First Responders, and all those who were there today. May you find courage and peace and the way forward from all of this.

    A good Comment on it, I just wish some of our fellow Americans would wake up and smell the roses when it comes to the real world and accept that the US is just as much a target as is every where else and needs to listen to the advise of other nations in dealing with the perps …. Gets off the Michael Garibaldi soap box
