    Americans to a large extent have been insulated from the terror and misery resulting from the war "responding" to 9/11 (and the lies of Cheney, et al). After reviewing the events at the Boston Marathon in my mind's eye at bedtime last night I prayed for the victims, their families, bystanders, the responders, police & fire personnel and medical professionals caring for the dead, wounded, and traumatized. After a while I thought about countries like Iraq and Afghanistan where hundreds of thousands are dead or have experienced this, sometimes on a daily basis, and are still experiencing it, but on much larger scale. They have lost their family members, their health and wholeness, homes, livelihoods, and their whole way of life. Americans to a large extent have been insulated from the terror and misery resulting from the war "responding" to 9/11 (and the lies of Cheney, et al). Of course we can only keep this in the forefront of our awareness to a limited extent. So as we contemplate the senselessness of this attack and mourn the violence and harm to the individuals, the families, the city and the country, it's time to take a moment and extend our consciousness and sympathies to not just Boston and the people who were part of this tragic event, but contemplate other victims of this type of violence throughout the world. We need to hope, pray and work for a more peaceful world and think about "defense," the largest part of our national budget. There has to be a better way.
