Thursday Jueves

Thursday, December 31, 2015. On this very special last Thursday of the year please remember Jueves, Thursday. Remember it today and every Thursday to come.

On Thursday, March 11, 2004, jihadi terrorists executed a murderous coordinated bomb attack against the commuter train system in Madrid, Spain. The explosions killed 191 people and injured more than 1,800. The song Jueves, by the Latin Grammy award winning group La Oreja de van Gogh, commemorates that horrific day.

The tide of terror has only waxed higher since the human hecatomb offered up on the alter of the god of fear on March 11, 2004. May those waters abide far from your doorstep in the new year. But in safety or danger may you always remember what is lost with every human blown to pieces for the Jihad.
