Wherever large numbers of potential victims are likely to be . . .

. . . that's where terrorists and/or other would-be mass murderers will go.  The toll at yesterday's Boston Marathon double-bomb attack, thus far:  three dead (including one eight-year-old), over 100 injured [update:  170].

Celebrating Yom HaAtzmaut (Israel Independence Day) under these circumstances feels pretty strange for me as an American living within a two-day drive from Boston.  "This is the day that G-d made, let us rejoice and be happy on it"?

"God commands us to be joyful even when our hearts lie panting on the floor". Or if you prefer Keep calm and carry on
