The new wave of terrorism.
Spread a rumor in a crowd of worshipers on a crowded bridge. Use no WMD, no Suicide bomber, no guns, no shots. just Words and stand aside and watch. Mission accomplished. More effective than any before and less blood shed, but more damaged done. Almost 1,000 killed in one day. Could anything more powerful that the WTC hijackers or Killer Katrina do such damage. It's always said, that word is mightier than the sword. Actually, it the pen, but today it'll be the Word. My bretherin Jdid did a blog about words, this week (what you actually expected me to link it, have you not been reading about me and my linking issues) If only he would know that the sharing or spreading of malicious words would cause so much devastation in Iraq. initially such has been overshadowed by the destruction of Killer Katrina.
In other news, yesterday was the 1yr anniversary of the Beslan massacare. where 330 people died, 180 of them children on their first day of school. Can words describe the feelings these people are having NO!!! No parables!!! Can words bring them back? No. I'm sure words had some part to play in the events that wook place that day. Either words, mispoken or taken out of contex or angry words spoken amongs the fractioning groups. But no words can ease the pain and suffering of the families who los their children on that fatefull day.
Just sit bak and think, reflect on what's happening in the world today. It's going to get much worse before it gets any better, if indeed it do get better. Don't use word, just think and reflect.
Enjoy your long weekend.
