Every time I’m traveling to another country people say be careful in that place.
Be careful in Morocco didn’t they kill 3 tourists in that Internet cafe?
Be careful in Jamaica they shoot people you know.
Watch out for Kenya that mall was under siege.
I am not making light of any loss of life, but people need to recognize this is “that place.” isn’t this that place where they bombed all those people in a marathon? Isnt this that place where that man massacred those people in a movie theater? Where all those kids were shot in their school? Stabbed in that other school? Where men shoot innocent teenagers for listening to the wrong music too loud and for walking around in hoodies? This is that place. That place is the USA. Death is not different because you cross a border, the color of blood runs universal. Be careful, you live in that place. Are you safe?
We have to stop the indiscriminate violence and loss of life here in the United States and stop fearing the world beyond our borders when we have enough to fear at the movie theater, school, and gas station down the street. What’s that little saying about stones and glass houses?"
