You think you have it rough?
Well it seems like people forget that there is a world living in fear.
Case in point, this headline I read today while I was bored:
Nightclub shooting kills 7 in Mexican Gulf state
A shootout between rival gangs at a nightclub left seven people dead in a Mexican Gulf coast city besieged by drug-related battles, while rumors of gunfire prompted people to flee a street fair where singer Jenni Rivera had been about to perform.
Five men and two women were killed late Friday in the shootout between rival gangs at the nightclub in Tampico, the state government of Tamaulipas said on its Web site.
It gave no other details, and nobody was available for comment Saturday at the offices of the Tamaulipas state Public Safety Department or the prosecutors' offices.
Also Friday evening, thousands of people fled a fair in Tampico amid reports of a shooting just as Mexican star Jenni Rivera was about to perform, the daily newspaper Reforma reported. Reforma said security forces evacuated the crowd.

This harsh reality is a reason why my heart goes out to Mexico at times. Being born in Mexico, I've had an easy life in America, and I have to hear about people complain about Obama-care and other random crap, but in Mexico, there's a war that is costing lives.
It's really sad...people enjoying a night out dead...and yet we toil in vain.
