After I posted my first article yesterday (this one), I realised that the people in Paris must have been traumatized. It’s amazing and wonderful how countries all over the world show support by lighting up statues and buildings and lighting candles.
But what about all other countries like Iraq, Pakistan and India? We hear about bombings every week and everyone continues with life. If we light up statues, buildings and candles for Paris, we should do that every time a country gets hit by terrorists. That probably means we can light up everything 24/7.
Why is the world so upset about the attacks in Paris, but strain no muscle by hearing about the bombings in non-western countries?
