First of all, thanks to all my faithful readers out there who haven't cut off their subscriptions due to a recent lapse in posts. I actually have plenty of blogworthy material on the back burner, but the times are against me.
I got busy, then took a business trip to Wales, and then this happened. I knew one of the victims of this horrible crime, and am working through how this affects the meaning of my life here, not only as a foreigner and as an adherent to a minority faith (a minority here anyway), but also as one who has grown from knowing those who are different from me, in my own country as well as in other countries where I have lived.
Don't expect answers any time soon.
