We Need to Put More Thought — and Less Shame — Into Our Conversations About Paris and Beirut on Social Media
In 2008, terrorists slaughtered 164 people in Mumbai in a series of coordinated attacks around the city. I used to live in Mumbai, or Bombay as most of the locals still call it, and as such, the news of the attacks there really hit me hard. This is a city in which I still have many friends, a wonderful, beautiful, confounding, dynamic city that welcomed me with open arms, a place that’s home to some of the most lovely people you’ll ever meet — and here it was, under attack by murderous fanatics. The news was devastating, the pictures horrifying.
