It's just unbelievable that so many people can mindlessly be killed everyday. Imagine it, everyday people must wake over there wondering if today is going to be the day they're going to die, it's just no way to live.

These attacks can strike anywhere at anytime (at least once a day), you must be able to to smell the terror in the air.
