Nigerian Bombing

Is Boko Haram to blame? Does a tragedy matter more, or less when there’s a tangible evil to apportion it to? 32 lives are gone, and at least 72 are still injured. The people killed were leaving a mosque, and others were dining at an eatery in Yola. To the people who think the War on Terror is an excuse for your bigoted views about Islam, consider how many Muslims were killed in this act of terror. Consider how many others are killed by the Taliban, by Assad, by ISIS… The people who committed this awful crime in Nigeria are terrorists, plain and simple. We pray for Nigeria. The Boko Haram insurgency seems to grow stronger by the day, but let us not allow the frequency of bombings desensitize us from the horrors of lives lost so crudely.
