On Getting Used To

"Eight people died in Afghanistan," my friend told me.

"Huh?"

That was my only response.

Afghanistan.

What's the first thing that comes into your mind when you hear the word?

"Eight people died in Afghanistan."

Why wasn't I surprised?


And now, take a glimpse of this beautiful country.

When was the last time you felt the sickening agony of the killings done by some people who called themselves the servants of God?

When was the last time you were shocked by the news about someone who jumped from the 5th floor of a shopping mall?

When was the last time you felt the painful stab on your chest when you saw the polices bringing out a package that contains bomb out of a building?

We are getting used to it. And that's the scariest thing of all.
