Good morning, my fellow Americans.
We awoke today to more horror across The Pond. Terrorists have struck again, this time in Brussels, Belgium. At least 34 people are dead. All of them are innocent civilians. All of them presumably leave behind loved ones who are grieving.
Who did this dastardly deed? It’s a good bet the act has the signature of the Islamic State or some other monstrous organization.
It’s no coincidence, certainly that the attacks came just days after Belgian police apprehended the last surviving suspect in the Paris attacks of a few months ago.
The nature of our enemy cannot be condemned enough.
They attack so-called “soft targets,” which is another way of saying they go for the most vulnerable victims. They people just like the rest of us doing what they do normally.
Then their lives are shattered. Gone in a spasm of violence.
Yes, this fight must continue for as long as it takes.
The 9/11 attacks of nearly 15 years ago opened our eyes to the threat that’s always been there.
We went to war against the terrorists. How in the world do we declare victory against this evil that lurks among us?
Our hearts are broken yet again this morning as we ponder what’s happened abroad. Yet we must remain as vigilant as ever.
