Not much profound to say today. After this latest outrage, piled on top of oh-so-many outrages here and abroad, I can only pray. Pray for Allah to bring murderers to justice wherever they are. Pray for Allah to give comfort to the parents who have to bury a child. Pray for those who are so misguided that they consider mass murder to be a valid political tool. My heart goes out to the victims of the bombing in Boston. My prayers are for all innocent victims here in the U.S. and abroad – the fighters and families in Syria, the people shopping in a market in Baghdad, the kids killed at a wedding Afghanistan, the little ones who finally succumbed to starvation in Sudan or North Korea. Every death, whether broadcast on the news or totally unremarked, is important.
Tonight I Pray for Boston and the World
