Violence Around the World

In Birmingham last week, a 17-year old woman was shot, "just hours after selecting an outfit for her first day at a new high school". More fighting over nothing, and the same themes as in Bermuda: "An editorial in The Birmingham News quickly condemned the continuing “mayhem,” and called on this city of 230,000 to develop “a simmering, determined, constructive anger” — a resolve, really, to protect its children."

Is there a point to this post? No. I just saw parallels in that article.
