recently on the first of september a middle school in the small town beslan, russia, was taken hostage by terrorists. in russia the first day of school is a celebration where parent, grandparents, friends, and childern go together to enjoy festivities. however this year they were surprised by a group of thirty armed men and women carrying guns. about 1, 300 people were taken to the gymnasium by the attackers. they were surrounded by bombs. i saw this one clip with this young boy sitting on a bomb and the attacker's foot resting on the device which causes it to exploded (sorry i didnt noe wut that device was called). babies were crying and there was this man you got killed for trying to keep people calm. the heat was getting to the young children and infants, that they were dehydrated. they were in three for three days and were made to strip down to their underwear... family members outside screaming trying to get to their loved ones and help them. the leaders of that town feeling helpless.. than when heavy gunfire and explosions began on Friday morning, and it was many hours before special forces had control of the school...young children jumped out of windows trying to escape and the terrorist shoot at them as they ran for it...at the end more than one hundred people died and they were mostly children....mothers making choices between which child to save.. there was this one mother that ran out to and handed one of her children to a police officer and ran back into the building and when someone tried to stop her she said she couldnt live one night without her other to childern... she died holding her daughter and her only son escaped...and there was this women who had a baby and (about) seven year old daughter...one day the terrorist let some mothers and babies go.. she asked of she could bring her daughter too.. he said ok...but when she went back to the gymnasium to get her sis-in-law the terrorist said she had to leave with only her baby son or he would cut open both their stomachs....she had no choice and left with her baby....after the terrorist were captured the mother heard her daughter was taken to the hospital and when she arrived her daughter would calm her down by saying she wasnt in that much pain and she loved them (HER PARENTS) however thank god she survived but is having nightmares about those horrible three guys.....my question is where was god and it turns out that those terrorists were part of an Islamic terroristic group and were also involved in the bombing of the metro station in spain...dont get me wrong im not trying to question god (even though it sounds like it) and i noe god was there when that little girl survived...but what are we to think? how could something like this happen....how could terrorism exist in this level around the world... how much can we pray? i love god with all my heart but how could he let something happen...how could he let september 11 happen....i have heard so many people say that maybe god wanted it to happen to bring us together and for a while it did but no we're back where we started...i hate feeling this way but when i show those clips it brought chills through my body....i guess it just hard to realize that evil doesnt exist in this world and evil that would even kill infants to get what it wants....i just hope God could open my eyes to what he wants me to learn from these events....i do realize that we are blessed in america more than those around the world....thanks for listening...(reading)
