I didnt know where else to post this, but this shit has been bothering me...
Here we are, the US, killing people all over the planet with our military and drones. How often innocent people are also left in the rubble and destruction. We write that off as collateral damage and keep doing it over and over. The general american public doesnt give a holy hell. But now we have this little Boston bombing, three people are killed, more injured (and its terrible, I'm not trying to trivialize it) and this doesnt leave the news screen, people are too horrified to even leave their homes. Theyre holding all these gatherings holding hands and singin songs together to try and make sense of it all.
WE CAUSE WAY MORE DAMAGE THAN THOSE BOMBS DAILY ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE GLOBE AND THOSE PEOPLE GO ON WITH LIFE
Personally it makes me sick to my stomach how self centered we are as a nation.
