What to say?

There's really nothing to say about Sunday's bombing...or, at least I can't come up with anything. It's being analyzed, denounced, reported on by others...
Is it worse, aside from the number of fatalities or especially that the number includes children from two on-site day care centers, than too many other days in Iraq? I suppose that depends on if you lost someone yesterday. I didn't, but it still bothers me. Then again, that's not the right word for the feeling. Maybe it's because I've lived with and been friends with people fleeing this chaos, but I don't believe you have to have lived in the region or known a single Iraqi (or Afghan) to have those images and stories tear at you. I hope it's simply a human response. I'm just not so sure, though.
