Mumbai Sees an End to the Violence

Terrorists leading the attacks in Mumbai, India had over 200 hostages at the five start Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.  I’m sure this was not quite the luxurious vacation many were hoping for.  I can not imagine how the residents of Mumbai must be feeling after the attacks. 

The terrorist group was well armed, carrying AK-47 assault rifles, grenades, and various other weapons.  They also had an amazing grasp of the layout of the hotel.  Indian commandos faced a particularly well armed and well prepared group.  After securing the hotel, the commandos spoke openly about the gruesome sights within the hotel.  Blood and bodies littered the floors.   They also had to be very careful as to not harm the already terrorized hostages. 

With nearly 200 killed and over 300 wounded, it is sad to say, but this could have been far worse.  I feel for the Indian people.   Sadly, terrorism has become a reality that the world will continue to have to endurein an up-close and personal way.  I’m hoping this will band the world together in solidarity, help us to find our inner humility and humanity, and lead us to find diplomatic ways to come together for the betterment of all mankind.
