September 1st

September 1st is back to school day in Russia and it’s a joyous occasion:

So why the tears?

Beslan of course.

And here are the people who feel that it’s fine to murder women and children because it’s all for the cause, you know and the cause is worth far more than any human life:

Religion of peace or religion of hatred?   Your call.   Aside from the atrocity itself, the abiding memory I have is the woman in the photo below left.   Just how could a woman do such a thing to other women’s children?   Can she feel nothing maternal at all, nothing which would stay her hand in doing this thing?

Apparently the cause is far more powerful than a sense of humanity.   How?   How do people get like this?   How could a woman do this?


To all the children returning to school today – best of luck and hope all goes well.  To those who will never make it – may your souls find rest.
