    That's a pretty bizarre comment.

    •  What is bizarre? (0+ / 0-)

      Unless the Boston bomber is a homegrown loner with ties to no one, someone or some persons may know who the bomber is.

      That's my point.

      My second point is about compassion, relating to others, feeling how others feel, a collective national pain to the suffering of the victims and their families, pain caused by at this time an unknown bomber or bombers.

      When this happened in Cuba in the late 90s, a bomb killing tourists was traced to Carriles who is free today in Miami.

      The third point is that between now and the next marathon while we are healing may we turn our attention for a moment to take Cuba off the list of nations sponsoring terrorist. The link at the end of my comment is for signing, considering we harbor a terrorist who bombed them.

      Your passion for a cause is admirable; but not here, not now.  

      •  The timing to reject and condemn all acts (0+ / 0-)

        of terrorism is every moment in time. The diarist created this diary looking ahead to the next marathon, it is a positive diary, written for all Americans, in his own words, Where do we go from here?

        Nobody needs to recommend or comment on what I wrote.

        I wrote to add to this conversation for the future so that we file it away for later in the spirit of this diary, notice my comment comes in at the very end of this diary.

        When innocent victims are bombed by ideology, these or them in Cuba (I'm American Cuban) very close to our shores we can relate and act if your heart is in it. It's very simple to sign a petition when you are ready. And very simple to skip my comment in silence. It is for reflection and looking to the future.

        Guaranteed we won't be harboring this Boston terrorist but we certainly are harboring our terrorist Luis Posada Carriles.

      •  One more thing (0+ / 0-)

        diarist Kathryn Brusco's diary expands on my comment. She didn't get the recognition, recommends I feel she deserves.

        After listing violent attacks occurring in less than one year in 2012 she wrote:

        I am not trying to diminish in any way what happened at the Boston Marathon, yesterday.  ...I am just suggesting that we must stand together as a World Community against these acts that occur everywhere, every time they occur.

        A World Culture Of Violence In Our 21st Century Global Community

        In the comments I added one to her list occurring on April 27th 2012, a bombing in Miami where thankfully no one was killed or injured.
