  •  Beautifully written, and heartbreaking (16+ / 0-)

    I have tears in my eyes as I read this. I have not been able to get your little country and the images of what happened out of my mind since this horror- my heart breaks for your people, and the familes, what you all must be going through. You have shown through your actions to be a strong, brave people. I am thoroughly disgusted, angered, and quite frankly ashamed that the writing of Americans may have given him inspiration. I know their ilk and frankly was never expecting them to apologize (they never do) but I never thought even they would stoop this low.  

    The lives that were mercilessly taken were, no doubt, some of your best and brightest and I know you will never be quite the same without them. There were some pictures and bio's and even a couple videos posted of some of the missing and presumed victims- and I was blown away by what I saw, how much they had already accomplished in their short lives. They would have made the world a better place. They are exactly the kind of young people I am raising my own daughter to be. When that sad list is final and the stories are told, the very small silver lining will be this- the world will see them for who they were, and their beauty and light will stand in stark contrast to Beck and every vile thing he stands for.

    Your country is in my prayers and I stand with you in solidarity. I will do everything I can to ensure these young people will not have died in vain. I hope we all carry on with the important work that they were doing, and fight for social justice, tolerance, and peace. We cannot allow the bullets of this monster, or the vile words of his apologists, to ever silence us or stand in the way of progress.

    Will work for food
    Will die for oil
    Will kill for power and to us the spoils
    The billionaires get to pay less tax
    The working poor get to fall through the cracks
