    Writer has said “It has become customary in Western societies for senseless acts of violence be committed.” This is contrary to the Middle East where genocide is committed everyday in the name of religion. Which is worse?

      Exactly what I thought! If you want to talk about “senseless acts of violence” as being “customary,” you need to look to the Middle East, not Western society. This was tragic, heart-wrenching, and abhorrent. And it was also isolated and uncommon. Too often we forget how fortunate we are to live in a society where these things are an anomaly rather than the fear that some people have to live with day-to-day. Let’s not forget that, as we also acknowledge that this family has suffered something no one should have to bear, no matter where in the world they live.
