To think about the friends and families of Mohammad Aimal, 25; Nicole Dial, 30; Shirley Case, 30; and Jacqueline Kirk, 40. These people worked for the International Rescue Committee in Afghanistan, and were shot to death yesterday while traveling in the Logar province. Another local aid worker was injured. IRC is suspending all of its humanitarian aid projects in that country now.
And to send sustaining thoughts to those who mourn in Iraq today, where, in Iskandariya, at least 19 people were killed and 99 injured when a woman blew herself up among people (many of them women and children) on pilgrimage to Karbala.
