I Say a Little Prayer for You...

A friend of mine is currently studying abroad in Madrid--when I read about the horrific bombings yesterday morning, I thought of her and her boyfriend. I called the boyfriend yesterday afternoon--he said she was OK but was shaken. She was supposed to be on that train, but decided not to go out at the very last minute. See what I mean when I say being a homebody is a joy?

But thank God nothing happened--thank God. I know you're reading this, Madrid Friend, so just know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. Take care of yourself, and your boyfriend is an absolute gentleman and eats even more than me!

An aside...

How did I know that the Spanish government was going to blame the bombings immediately on ETA and the Basque nation? I seriously doubt it was ETA (if it was, I'm not sure what to think), but does Spain really think it's immune to Al-Qaeda?! After all, this is the country where the current schism between Islam and Christianity began--thanks a lot, Fernidad and Isabella!
