Did anyone see "Inside the Mind of a Suicide Bomber" last night? I recently read an article about them, but it really wasn't anything like actually seeing pictures of the devestation they cause. These particular ones had done their dirty deeds in Israel. As I sat there wondering how these people go on with thir lives knowing this could happen anywhere, anytime, it hit me. We, Americans, are now these people! I refuse to live in constant fear! Fear is not going to prevent it, it is only going to make our lives a constant battle, playing right into their hands! While I am very sorry for the sick and the dead in this time of tragedy, I am going on about my life! Sure, even in this disgustingly small town, we make a few preparations, food, water, cat supplies, etc., but we would do that if we were expecting a hurricane. I have a whole new respect for the people of Israel and Ireland, and I hope we Americans can take it as seemingly well as these brave folks! Thanks for letting me rant!!!
