Before I was born, someone tried to blow up my dad. During the 1970's, Puerto Rican secessionists placed a series of bombs in New York and Chicago. One of them was in a federal building that my dad was in. Fortunately, that bomb was discovered and disposed of safely.
I was lucky because my dad was lucky. This child would have been 15 right now had he been lucky.
Whatever your cause, no matter how noble your intentions, history judges you by your actions.
