When our TV is on there is usually a tragedy. This time the terrible happening in Boston that you have all been watching.
(A sane person must wonder what is going on in the head of the kid in the baseball cap?)
I have to stand close to the TV and read the closed caption. Not fun but I can keep up pretty well.
So sad that innocent people are killed, maimed for life and otherwise injured, because of some insane idea of ‘terror is the way to protest’.
(A view many will live with, creating a hell in someone’s mind, who will now confined to a wheel chair for the rest of their lives, or will mourn the loss of one so very dear to them)
I think of the hundreds of people world wide who have died, lost legs, arms, eyes and safety because some misguided person thinking ‘jihad’.
There is basically something twisted with a mind set that says “no one should be allowed to live other than my faith, or my belief”. No room for other beliefs or opinions. TERRIBLE belief and attitude.
Our prayers are for the victims of this act of Terror!
Our TV has been on way too much:
The shuttle Challenger
The shuttle Columbia
The twin towers and 9/11 attacks
Oklahoma City Bombing
Too many to name from memory. In America we should have been relaxing and reading instead of watching the reporting of an act of terror or a tragedy. Many folks do not think so, but we are still free in this country and that fact is taken advantage of to spread hate.
Today we were driving and saw two emergency vehicles, I always say, someone’s day or life may be ruined, and I breath a silent prayer that all will be well.
Last night folks were jubilant, at the capture of the second ‘suspect’, and with every right. But that means little to the ones who lost legs and lives to two men’s cruel acts of terror.
Remember the victims.
I have often wondered how it is to live in Israel, Iraq and Afghanistan. Where bombs are nearly common place.
I was not a Ford man, but this ‘56 convertible was a gem.
