First we had coverage of the attacks in Mumbai. I sat staring at the TV wondering how anyone could get to the point where they hate other people enough to form a whole attack like this and target specific types of people. I'm very easy going in relation to how other people live their life. I think I'm good at the live and let live thing. So to see people who blatantly hate Americans, or whatever group, just for being in that group - I struggle to understand.
Second and third topics on the news were man shot in a Toys R' Us - who knows potentially over buying a toy?!? WOW - then, Walmart worker trampled in the Black Friday rush. He died; they also trampled a pregnant woman who is going to live.
Suddenly, I feel like I understand the hate that would lead you to target and kill a group of people. Not that I would be the one going out to kill the Black Friday tramplers, but I can see how if you were in another country and this was the news you receive - Americans are evil people who trample other citizens simply because they want a discounted Baby Alive or digital camera. Honestly, we are such a lucky group of people I can see how we could be despised based on the fickle things that turn into horrible occurrences!
