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.
