"I know that love is ultimately the only answer to mankind's problems. And I'm going to talk about it everywhere I go."  
Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr. 

Sometimes I wonder, which are the "difficult" emotions & which are the "easy" ones? Love & sorrow always go with the difficult ones, nostalgia & retribution with the easy ones.

What happened in Boston today happens every day in Iraq & Afghanistan. At the market, at a mosque, at a wedding, at a funeral. With the same horrific injuries. By comparison, we live a very secure nation. We will identify & apprehend the criminals. They go unpunished elsewhere, instead there is a deadly cycle of violent  retribution upon the innocent.
