As President Bush spoke to those gathered at Blacksburgh, Virginia after the loss of 33 lives including the life of Cho Seung-Hui's, he made these striking remarks, “Yesterday began like any other day. Students woke up, and they grabbed their backpacks and they headed for class. And soon the day took a dark turn, with students and faculty barricading themselves in classrooms and dormitories — confused, terrified, and deeply worried. By the end of the morning, it was the worst day of violence on a college campus in American history — and for many of you here today, it was the worst day of your lives.”

If I could have the president’s ear just for one second, I would say that is the world you created for the Iraqi people. They too have been terrified and yet no one sees them as being victims of terror.

Their terror has gone on long enough.  It is not just one day of suffering, hiding behind anything they can to distance themselves from bullets or any number of armaments used in this war; this has been their daily life for over four years now.

Time will go on for those at Virginia Tech in which they will be surrounded by loved ones in order to help them cope with this tragedy of human loss; but who will be there for the innocent Iraqis caught up in a war they did not deserve?  Who will comfort them?  Who will help them try and make sense of the violence?  Are there counselors in place to help them?

As a war of terror hit that college by one man, in Iraq, terror has hit these innocent people by many.  No one is discussing any warning signs in which they should look out for.

The AP has now reported, “Four large bombs exploded across Baghdad on Wednesday, killing at least 127 people and wounding scores” As Americans are shell-shocked with a death toll of 33, one must ask; how come no such emotions are coming from any of us as we read that 127 people lost their lives in Iraq?
