    I waver on this. IMO Americans tend to be extremely insular about what goes on in the rest of the world, especially when it comes to war, death, destruction that our own country has had a hand in. We SHOULD see what is happening, and what we have contributed to bringing about. The folks who die around the world should be more than just statistics to us.

    At the same time, it seems extremely hypocritical that we should be so protective about Americans who have died, yet we have no problem seeing pics of violence happening far away.

    I have no answers. I just wish we here could collectively somehow empathize more with others around the world who live with this kind of violence happening on a regular basis. I don't know how to get us to do that, as a nation. I do encourage everyone to always view a wide range of media from not just the US, but around the world, so that we get a fuller picture.

    I don't know. So sad over this, and all violence, wherever it happens.

    The thinking behind it is probably that zippers being blasted could act like a knife - long metal tiny "teeth" thrown at a high rate of speed with lots of power behind it, landing the right way, could cut a leg right off.

    That's just me imagining it, I could be wrong.

    I completely agree with this statement. Thank you, Believe. I watched this developing news from the beginning and had to turn it off. Not because I was in any denial, but because all I could think of were all the friends and family watching the news coverage. The sheer pain that must have gripped their very souls in not knowing where their beloveds were.

    I have a friend who went to support the runners of the marathon and it was *hours* before he could be in touch with anyone or anyone to him. He was very lucky, but did hear and feel the force of explosions. He stated the panic he felt for students he was concerned about. It was horrific.

    Just my couple of pennies worth of opinion...

    A few miles away from the finish line and around the same time, a fire broke out at the John F. Kennedy Library. The police commissioner said that it may have been caused by an incendiary device but that it was not clear whether it was related to the bombings.

    Authorities gave no details on the search. Investigators were seen leaving a building there early Tuesday carrying brown paper bags, plastic trash bags and a duffel bag.
    It's my opinion if no link provided.

    Looks like they got a propane tank sitting outside that car.

    Maybe the zippers were part of the backpack?
