Chechnya. SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2013 v6n1 p0419

April is a magical month for North America as the earth wakes up from a deep sleep and tosses pink and yellow and white and purple and red and blue blossoms near our feet, near our faces and way up in the air.

April brings out the runners, and the crazies. So many Aprils have woken anger that is incomprehensible to the happy and healthy.

In 1993, I was working in a sunny lab at University of Pennsylvania measuring protein concentrations, listening to the radio ambush of the Waco compound in Texas.

In 1995, I was in Freiburg-im-Breisgau, about to get on a train to a conference on carbon dioxide in Switzerland when I glanced up and looked at a clock. At that exact instant, a federal building in Oklahoma was blown up.

And today, April 19 2013, Boston is filled with armored police in the streets, assault weapons ready to blow to kingdom come anything that smells like a threat.

I have another vivid memory. Of watching CNN in my husband's house in Breitnau, a tiny village high in the mountains of the Black Forest near Freiburg-im-Breisgau. Chechnya was under attack from Russia because Chechnya wanted to become its own country, and Russia refused to let it leave. Chechnya had orchestrated terrorist attacks throughoit Russia and had ferociously resisted Russian troops attacking their country.

The memory that is so vivid is of young men dancing, manically dancing. They knew the morning would bring a major Russian attack. Indeed, it did. And that area of Chechnya was brutally bombed and set on fire. Likely the young men all died.

That was about 1993, maybe 1994. At the time, all I could think about was the hatred that anyone Chechen would have for Russia, or for anyone in the United States letting such human rights abuses to happen, and not help.

Is that why Boston was bombed? A sad attempt to avenge the unforgivable, the unavengable?

Tale of Two Brothers. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2013 v6n1 p0420

Now is the morning after, when the earth is even more dressed for spring, outside my office window, dogwood and cherry trees are heavy with pink and white blossoms, and tulips are pushing through.

And a 19 year old boy is being repaired in a hospital in Boston so that the wrath of the United States justice system can come down on him in court, and sentence him to a delayed death that so many watching the circus yesterday wanted then.

So why did he do it? Why did a young immigrant from Chechnya who had lived happily in Cambridge for 10 years fill pressure cookers with nails ane explosives so that a little boy and 2 young women were killed and 5 happy other spectators of the Boston Marathon lost one or more legs?

Very simple. The boy was smoking dope and failing all his classes, after being a certified scholarship-winning boy genius. And no-one was there to re-direct him, tell him he was loved and honored no matter what he did, except for his evil older brother who decided to commit suicide under the pretense of blaming the US for 40,000 murdered in Chechnya. The absence of love is a powerful force for evil.
