For Pakistanis It’s A Boston Marathon Bombing Nearly EverydaySubmitted by Trevor Lyman on Thu, 04/18/2013 - 22:09
My heart goes out to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, one of whom was an eight year old little boy named Martin Richard who had so much life in front of him.
What a terrible and senseless tragedy. I can’t let myself think about it for too long without welling up inside.
While my timing in saying what I’m about to say may seem harsh to some, now is the only time to make this point.
For the people of Pakistan the Boston Marathon bombing happens nearly every day. Sometimes it’s a lesser bomb and fewer people are killed or injured. Sometimes it’s a much larger bomb like one example that left nearly seventy children dead at one time (that’s about three times the loss of children that happened in Sandy Hook).
Can you imagine?
