Bali terror

  1. My condolences to all the citizens of all the different countries that suffered casualties in the Bali bombing. I saw funeral services for the Austrialian citizens killed on TV and felt really bad. It occured to me that we here in eastern USA might be so caught up in this sniper business that we may appear to be insensitive to the disaster.

    I join you in sending condolences world wide to those who lost loved ones in that terrorist act. It was horrendous and the sorrow rings everywhere.

    I am a nursing student, so I have not had too much time to watch the news, but a girl in my class lost a cousin in the blast. He was staying a few blocks away and must have just stopped by there for a moment. (he was supposed to meet someone an hour after the blast) They hoped for a while that they might find him in a hospital...so sad....just 30 years old.

    It's all very sad. The Australians are being great about caring for the victims of the blast, no matter what their citizenship is.

    My husband and I were appalled to hear of it, as well as the bombing in the Phillipines. Terrorism was already pervasive enough; I do not understand why more and more countries must be included. All it can do is reinforce the position of our President and Government that terrorism must be stopped NOW!

    Condolences to any and all who were affected by this most recent wave of pure-D meaness!

    Thoughts on our tragedy - bear with me - long post

    It is so hard to express how l feel at the moment - Our country is so small - population wise ( only 19 and a half million) to loose so many, so young l am having real trouble thinking abot it let alone expressing it -

    My thoughts to all the families
    My admiration to the nurses who managed so much horrific care for the wounded
    My thoughts to our friends on this board who have lost people close
    My thoughts for our country so small - in poplulation- so large in size - So precious to all who live here -

    It has been hard to talk about for me - in my area l know of 2 people lost in this area 1 a friend of a friend - we talk about the expression 6 degrees of seperation (is that the correct thought) - we are so small - it is so common at the moment )

    I havnt posted for a while - havent wanted to and its too hard to put into words feelings and thoughts
    Its just too hard to think about the fact that people - mostly young were out there having fun - gone
    (So many of us Australians have been to Bali - we were there 24 years ago) No cant go on at the moment
    -
    l just like many people here and probably there 12 months or so ago - am just going through the motions - cause the emotions are raw - its easier to keep the normal routine on a day to day basis and not go too deep into the thoughts

    My kids are 21 and 20 - my daughter plans / planned a trip to Bali at Christmas

    We have and will encouraged them to travel to learn and expeerience life - it is so important to learn about all cultures and people to be balanced- l beleive

    I am sorry if l have gone off on a tangent - it is very hard at the moment here - we are raw.

    There were so many countries apart from Australia involved in this horrific act - as you may have read in your papers - Our thoughts as a nation went to them as well as us - l just shake my head and worry where are we going in this world at the moment
    I am going to stop l am getting maudalin (?spelling)

    Just my thoughts at a vunerable time
