Amazing story. 

We should learn something about the human condition from this.  And find ways to heal and try do positive things in our world instead of destroying it.

Chris Hedges, a NYTimes reporter speaks about his feelings about nationalism (2nd link): “When I was in New York, as some of you were, on 9/11, I was in Times Square when the second plane hit. I walked into The New York Times, I stuffed notebooks in my pocket and walked down the West Side Highway and was at Ground Zero four hours later. I was there when Building 7 collapsed. And I watched as a nation drank deep from that very dark elixir of American nationalism … the flip side of nationalism is always racism, it’s about self-exaltation and the denigration of the other. ”
