Gene Valaitis: Why don’t you care?


Why don’t you care?

305 people [27 children] were killed Friday by terrorists in an Egyptian mosque. 305 PEOPLE!

People just like you and me. People with families and money concerns and children and jobs to worry about. Just like you and me. Anywhere in the world.

Where are the Facebook flags and posts? We are so sadly politically and ideologically selective.

Why did our Love, Peace, and Compassion so obviously fade? Paris. Yes. Las Vegas. Yes. The other acts of terror, Yes.

Egypt? Not so much. Why?

My heart goes out to sweet Egypt this weekend.

Even though no one else seems to care.  RIP.
