The bomb goes off, the Tweets rush in. Think of it as our only way of keeping ourselves distracted from the thought that it could have been us - or our family members - caught in the midst of whatever the latest tragedy is. Prayers go out to those killed and effected by today's terrorist attack in Lebanon. #PrayForLebanon
Regardless, there's definitely a couple of common themes that run through the Tweets you'll see after a blast goes off in Lebanon:
1. Life goes on.
3. Calls for local blood donations
Usually comes with a picture of a mosque and a church to prove religion doesn't divide us.
5. R.I.P. Lebanon
Because let's face it, if you're not being pessimistic about the future of our country, it's as if you're not being patriotic.
