For February vacation, my family and I went on a cruise. While on the cruise I had extremely limited internet and very little news available. When I came back to the continental U.S. and had internet access again, I was very sorry to hear of the tragedies in Turkey. My condolences to those who have lost friends or family, or who were injured, through bombings and/or violence.
Once again it brings to the forefront our mortality and vulnerability to acts of violence, which is always difficult. Life is hard enough with illnesses and accidents, without death coming announced by others’ hand.
So a moment of Internet Silence. Rather than blog about my vacation today, I will wait until tomorrow. It does not seem right to mix the two posts.
