An incredibly sad day in Spain; yet a hopeful one. Perhaps their resolve has been strengthened. It often takes events like this to help resolve along. The millions that marched in Madrid today are our allies. They are our fellow soldiers in the war against terror.
They took to the streets in Spain Friday by the thousands. They stood in the rain and cried and prayed for the victims of yesterday's terrorists attacks that killed 198 and wounded over 1,000 people. In the evening, nearly two million people marched through the streets in a mass protest against terrorism.
The marchers were led by Spanish royal family members and leaders, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and EU President Romano Prodi. The march, which is still going on right now, is making its way through the city and towards the train station where the blasts occurred.
A silent protest was held in Washington, D.C

The attacks claimed their 199th victim; a baby who die in the hospital today.
Millions of people, joined together for one cause.
I remember that. I remember feeling united as one after 9/11. I hope for Madrid's sake, that feeling of unity lasts for them. You can't fight terrorism without it.
