Remember this

I’m sorry. I’d almost forgot the evil visited upon Beslan a year ago. But “Children of Beslan”, shown on BBC World, is a heartstabbing reminder. Watch it, however way you can. Never forget. Don’t kid yourself that this sort of thing is a million miles from you, you, you. Any number of wrong, greedy, fool-headed moves by any number of wrong, greedy, fool-headed devils can land any community in the same straits.

Some articles on “Children of Beslan”:
1. Dana Stevens, Slate MSN — “The new documentary on HBO is brilliant, but bone-crushingly sad.”
2. NPR — “Remembering the ‘Children of Beslan'”
3. Ewa Ewart, BBC News — “Beslan children still tormented”
4. Tony Perry, Sun Sentinel — “Children in HBO documentary tell powerful stories of siege in Beslan”
