I would like to talk about what happened in London. I believe that it was an attack on the humanity expressed by bombs in one of the safest cities in the world. I realize that Al qaeda took an advantage of the meeting of the "group of 8" (that was taking place in Scotland) because it represents manipulating all the international press and the public opinion around the world.
many journalists argue that the objetive of the succession of terrorist attacks is to slipt the world into two bloks, the Muslim and the western.
I can make a contrast out between those who are looking for finishing the problems of poverty, hunger, SIDA, environment and terrorism while others are killing innocent people. It is really ironic, isn´t it?
What I find curious is that on 11 March, 2004, the attack in Atocha, spain, like this one, were caused in the transport system and it is not a coincidence. Again in a big city, again in the undergrounds bacause these trains are the heart of Europe and this continent is closed by these undergrounds.
Apart from the political impact of this movement that goes further on the nuber of victims, the presssaid that the next target may be Italy and Denmark. as you can see, nobody can escape from this. Do you believe that this is fair. I don´t think so but what can we do?.The great shock that this represents in the world and the feeling or horror that everybody is suffering make me think about the different viewpoints about the meaning of LIFE. I can´t believe my eyes!. Where is the respect of the human being and the dignity?What do we have to do to live in a safe world without this violent situations? How can people be so evil that do not care at all about killing innocent lives? The answer of this questions will never be found out. We are destroying our planet letting this ideologies exist.

Well, Im' a bit lost too, as I don't know where to post the comments, but let's go to the subject, which what happened in LOndon.
For me,this is one of those episodes in life that makes you feel shocked and speechless, as any human death. The fact of many innocent people dying makes you feel impotent, but they're not the only innocent people that die: thousands of people die everyday in the world and we don't even stop one second to think about. Why? Is this because they're black? Because they don't live in the most powerful countries in the world? Because we're so acostumed to hear that africans or peolple in the Middle east die of hunger that it seems so natural to us? Well, it shouldn't be like this. There's people in our own country dying of famine and we don't look at them.
What worries me the most is the people that will die from now on. This attack is again the perfect excuse for those who "fight aganist the terrorism" to justify and go on with their colosal warlike adventures: they have to show who has the power, who's in control, are really they? I hope not.
That's when I wonder,when will this end? Will it? This game of evil against good, where tehre are just a few evils that can end up with the lives of many goods.
I still think we can change the world, but how?

My dearest Noe, Lu and Lau,

I loved reading your postings and thinking that through them and thanks to them I might start having more hopes myself... Are there many people like you, really conscious of the desperate state people are in this world right NOW?
And how can we help this change you are suggesting come true....?
What can we do from our tiny corners, each of us?
