Where is the outrage?


How can we continue to shop and gripe at traffic and gas prices and in general turn away from the cruel injustice visited upon others? How can we simply pretend that history has stopped and that because things seem normal in the mall, ignore the fact that the world is actually in complete turmoil?

This boy paid for our blissful ignorance.

“A woman takes her dead son into her arms, as she grieves for her six-year-old son, Dhiya Thamer, who was killed when their family car came under fire by unknown gunmen in Baqouba, capital of Iraq’s Diyala province, 60 kilometers (35 miles) northeast of Baghdad, Iraq, on Sunday, Sept. 16, 2007. The boy’s ten-year old brother, Qusay, was injured in the attack as the family returned from enrolling the children in school, where Dhiya was to begin his first year. ”
