Sadness, the day after

Filed under: General July 8, 2005 @ 8:33 pm

I heard about the London bombings first thing yesterday morning. For some reason, it took until this evening to really hit me. I’m quite sad. And angry.

To the right wing and to the left wing: please stop with the cheap commentary on this issue. It’s inhuman to rejoice at the hope that “Europe will now take terrorism seriously.” It’s ridiculous to base your criticism of Bush on this one event, as if another policy would somehow prevent all terrorism. For now, over 50 people have died, and hundreds more are wounded. It’s horrible, terrible, unimaginable, really. Let’s pay our respects before we start bickering, again.
