National and global tragedies have become chess pieces in the larger political game. How someone responds to these events have become blatant attempts to gain points on the political score board. When the Paris attacks happened media agencies could not wait for confirmed details and immediately begin speculating the identity and background of the perpetrators.
I worry when my husband attends a crowded college football game. I worry when I attend any type of religious event. I worry when I'm in a crowded a flea market, when I think about traveling with my family, when I hear a siren screaming in the distance. I worry for the innocence lost, the lives cut short, the souls that leave too early.
