The worst about this morning’s bombs in Brussels is the absence of shock.
A suicide bomber shouting a verse from the Quran blew himself up at the airport, killing many innocent people, at least a dozen, perhaps more.
Others planted bombs in the Metro during rush hour, causing further deaths.
And we are not shocked.
We go about our business, checking devices for updates.
After Paris, we tell ourselves, there were bound to be more coordinated attacks. Only a matter of time and place.
We pray for no-news.
We barely spare breath to condemn.
This is the new normal.
How we adjust to it is the test of our humanity.
