The attack on Spain

I'd like to extend my deepest sympathies to and express heartfelt solidarity with the people of Spain.  After the horrendous and tragic attacks in Madrid today, I have already realized this is your September 11 — not to be gloated over like some cheap carnival prize or competitively compared like children's marble collections, but to be reviled and remembered.  You have suffered an inexplicable loss and will find that only the passage of time — and probably more than you care to admit — will diminish the shock and horror and despondence.  We stand with you in your determination to see justice served.  We support your democracy in the face of this egregious assault on it and the Spanish people.  Most importantly, please know that we weep with you in this solemn time.
