When 9/11 happened, there was an outpouring from countries across the globe holding vigils, sending flowers to our embassies, and many other acts of solidarity and support.

Now 3/11 has happened in Spain. What kind of outpouring of support are we showing Spain? Granted, not nearly as many people were killed as were killed on 9/11, but does that make it any less tragic? These were people on their way to work and school that were killed. We should be showing them the support and sympathy like they showed us instead of sticking our heads back into the sand and concerning ourselves with only our country. We are not alone in the fight against terrorism, and we can be certain that further acts of terrorism won't be restricted to those 'other countries'. So let's rid ourselves of this isolationist attitude, and recognize the other inhabitants of this planet and treat them as we want to be treated.
