What has always escaped me is how they can live here ( or anywhere they claim to despise ), enjoy the freedoms of said country, sometimes for many years. They work, socialize, have friends, and build a life in country that welcomed them and their culture. Then they destroy the entire thing. And in this case, leaving even family to wonder why.

It is probably just me, but somehow I have always thought that living here would change their minds, much in the same way that just watching video of the Middle East had made me grateful I didn't live there.

I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
