Only just saw this on the BBC website.

And it's not like you guys never suffer terrorism over there, right?

Oh I get it... we get plenty of it here... and crazy white kids shooting up schools. I think the level of these type of attacks seems way more severe in Europe, though. Not a criticism at all, good god I have no idea what the US would do if thrown into some of the situations that modern Europe has to deal with - but I can understand why people scream for closed borders, etc. (Yes, I know we have NO evidence this is foreign, but lets look at recent history...)

Exactly. The UK or US, this was a horrible, disgusting act of violence.

A man who responded to the attacks by donating blood was interviewed outside.

Well, laughter does help sometimes. And you're not making fun of the bombing itself. And you're right. He would be. ;)

I knew one of the victims. Not overly well but enough that it was surprisingly more real. Deplorable act, regardless. RIP.
