This is a sad tragedy, but I can not keep my mind from going down two different avenues...:

1. Noone in China is allowed to own a gun, all people there are being strictly monitored in phone and internet conversations, and yet this kind of thing can still happen. There can only be one reason... they have failed to outlaw knives. If only knives were outlawed, these kind of things would not happen...right?

2. I am seriously against the US being at the Olympics for human rights, and many other political issues. Had we not been there, this would not have happened.

This is a fallen world. These things happen everywhere. Think of the scores that will be killed today in major cities around the world, even in America, that won't even make anything beyond the local news.

Don't forget the bombings in Atlanta. Tragedy can happen anywhere, in any country.

I was dismayed when I read this though. Especially given most of the other headlines were of tragedy and death...a bus crash in Texas with many deaths...war in Georgia with scores dead... :sad

I don't care where they hold the Olympics. It's not any bigger deal to me than where the Rolling Stones decided to hold a concert or where some sports team chooses to hold an exhibition game.

It's a worldly matter wrapped up in worldliness no matter where they choose to hold the event.
