World has been being torn apart by war for decades, starving people, sickness, natural disasters etc. Hardly call an act of terrorism the most significant event of our lifetime, not saying it wasnt horrible and tragic, just saying that there is alot of horrible and tragic things going on in this world, hardly feel more for one than another.

Aids is taking the lives of over 6000 people a day in Africa alone. Terrorism in a way is considered an act of war, many innocents die from war, never going to change. I find alot more tragedy in the knowledge that for the price of a $.10 condom a life could be saved.

If this event happened somewhere other than America it would be all but forgotten by now.
