Reflections of 2010

Only now a few years on, can I write about these events.  I avoided writing about it the time, to allow everyone to think about the consequences of the attacks in their own way.

It is always very hard to accept that tragedy can in some way, have positive results.  As we gazed in horror at what looked more like a scene from a science fiction movie the bombing of Namboole national stadium Carrying thousands of people inside. We had two immediate responses : first, a sense of impotence and terror In the face of what was happening : second, a sense that our country would never be the same again. 

The country will never be the same, its true but after this long period of reflection on what happened, is there still a sense that all those people died in vain? Or can something other than death, dust, and twisted steel be found beneath Namboole stadium? 

I believe that the life of every human being is, at some point, touched by tragedy. It could be the destruction of a city, the death of a child, a baseless accusation, an illness that appears without warning and brings with it permanent disability. Life is a constant risk, and anyone who forgets this will be unprepared for the challenges that fate may have in store.
