Little Saffie's face stared out from so many newspaper front pages and websites this week.

The killer was a grown man, but Saffie's life had barely begun.

I first heard about the attack through another forum. It was shocking to see this unfold, with so many young people killed or badly injured. Was surprised because I had thought somehow that today's terrorists (unlike the IRA) were really only interested in the capital in Britain, obviously that's not true. I observed the silence and am not a concert goer, but the Westminster attacks had more direct resonance because I have been to that area many times, though not in recent years.

The Kabul bomb on Wednesday was worse than either of the above, not that that diminishes them of course. And now protesters that it was allowed to happen have been shot dead at a demonstration by government forces as well.

the reason that Muslims killing Muslims in Muslim countries doesn't get the same fuss is because it's so common that people in the West are numbed to it.

It was Eilidh Macleod's funeral yesterday. Incredibly moving to see her being piped across the beach on her way to the service in Castlebay. Not ashamed to say I was in tears.

Must have been very hard for the people of Barraigh with all the media attention on them. I hope they were treated with the respect and consideration they needed.
