Where our empathy should not end.

Ed Brayton has written a powerful piece about finding perspective in the wake of the Boston bombings.  Everybody should read it.

The rage that we feel and the desire for vengeance on those who perpetrated such evil is nearly a daily occurrence in Pakistan, for example. The bombs aren’t left in garbage cans, they are shot from drones that can’t even be seen, but the result is exactly the same. Innocent people die and those who love those people experience all the same emotions we do. Just as we crave revenge, so do they. Is it any wonder, then, that they seek it?

The man’s brilliant.
