    whole nation would be apoplectic and distraught. Yet because it was in a nation far, far away filled with people who look different than us, nobody in the US seems to care very much. The thing is, when 20 children die, it is exactly as tragic, exactly as sad, exactly as distressing whether they are in California or Calcutta. No matter how or why this happened, the families of these kids will be forever in pain.
