Two days after almost 300 men, women, mums, dads, grandparents and children were killed by thugs while their plane flew over Eastern Ukraine, I can't write about frivolous stuff. More than 150 Dutch are dead, but nationalities don't matter in disasters like this. Every single one of those people on board had someone out there who loves them and who will mourn and miss them for many years to come. President Obama was right to warn Europe that this tragedy shows us we are not isolated from wars in foreign places no matter how unimportant we may consider such conflicts to our daily lives. Sooner or later the pathetic war mongering thugs and the "local" conflicts come to right to our doorstep, and it is the duty of our elected leaders to prevent such devastation before we bury more innocent children and their families.
