As I was telling my friends - the saddest part about this event (aside from the killings/injuries) is that it felt so incredible real and possible. When 9/11 occurred, it was one of those situations where I just questioned what I had just seen on TV, and if it was really real - I couldn't believe it.
When I first heard about the bombings, I was instantly sad and upset, but I wasn't in disbelief. It just all seems so entirely possible.
This is the world we live in. I don't walk around in fear, and I feel very safe no matter where I am, but the fact that I can hear about an event and not actually question if it's real or not is just downright sad.
If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out
