it's horrible news, really. people can be crazy and i don't know what the person was thinking when they set those bombs.
however, @banana, you can't just say that it's not a big deal because even if the people who died aren't close to us, it still is devastating nonetheless to those who knew victims of this bombing. plus, it's a big deal for our country as this imposes a threat to America's security and safety. but i do agree with you that life goes on, and at least those who died are in a better place now. also, Americans should be more aware of what's going on in 3rd world countries; you do make a point there. unfortunately, everyone here is too busy arguing against themselves about politics and such that they're no attention to what's happening in other areas of the world.
