Ottawa
I hear there has been a shooting in Parliament and a couple more in the streets. I hope we don't have any affected members...

RE: Ottawa
Yeah I heard about it. I'm not sure what think tho.
Sad


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

One that I know of. I'll message her.


Edit: She's rattled, but OK.

RE: Ottawa
The soldier who was hit in Quebec was about 30 min from my house in St. Hubert and today I'm in Orleans, a suburb of Ottawa about 10 min from downtown. Not involved with either but damn that's a little too close for comfort.

Especially with all my guns in Vermont Tongue

I never understand this type or violence.

It's terrible and just seemingly stupid.

Not surprised at all that this was (likely) an Islamist. Islam truly is the worst religion. Sigh.

This reminds me of an article I read earlier... Pew recently conducted a survey asking residents in 40 countries what they perceive to be the biggest threat to the world. Surprisingly, about a third of people in the middle east think religion and race issues are the worst... too bad they're not the majority.

Not sure that religion alone is the greatest threat, but when couple with nuclear weapons its certainly worrisome.

I would simply say that Islam is not the worst religion. It is instead a religion not typically restrained by secular constraints.

To be fair that is his solution to everything else as well.
