I'm not sure what emotion I want to feel at this moment.
Deeply saddened, at the death of a soldier. Though he was not one of my soldiers, he was still a soldier. Who was brutally murdered in cold blood, in the middle of the day. He didn't deserve what happened to him, and further than that he was not even defended while he was attacked.
Severely outraged, at the fact that so many people just walked by and did nothing - or outraged at the fact that those men did such a thing. Do they think they will get away with it? That they are making a 'statement'? That is not how you make a statement. That is how you procure the ire and anger of people. If their goal was to outrage people and start a war, they failed. Though I still wish that someone had defended that poor soldier.
Extremely Proud, of those three Angels who stood up. Even though the soldier was dead, those women did what they could. Though I have to admit had it been me, I wouldn't have reacted quite the way they had.
Of course, if I had been there and seen it happening from the start... I would have looked for something heavy to swing at the knife wielding psychos. I would have ripped at anything not bolted down, and started to assault them as hard and as fast as I could. Disarm them in some way, use clothing to tie them up, anything to keep them off of that soldier.
It is nice to have ideals, and beliefs; but those beliefs and ideals should not impinge upon or destroy the lives and hopes of others. I hope those killers get the full extent of brutality that they deserve. Were this the old days, I'd fully endorse them allowing the soldier's family to mete out the justice they saw fit. If that was one of my relatives, I would destroy those two men with my bare hands.
Of course, that's just the sort of person I am.
