Sympathy and Condolences

I can only offer my sympathy and condolences to the victims, their families and friends of the train-bomb attack in Mumbai.

I feel a gut-wrenching sadness when I think about how many lives have been irreparably maimed because of this horrendous act. To me, nothing is worse than a vicious attack on innocent civilians. It is, of course, easier for the cowards who committed this treacherous crime to kill helpless people than to work hard and honourably for whatever it is they want to accomplish.

But, the Lord saw all of this, I'm sure. I also believe that the Lord will give strength and comfort to those who ask for it. The citizens of Mumbai must remember that it is in their moments of direst hardship that God is carrying them. As for the perpetrators of this attack, I hope that they will realize what sins they've committed and ask the Lord for forgiveness.

May all of them see Christ's face, hear Christ's voice, and feel Christ's love.

Summer School and John Denver

ESL Part 2 started two days ago. There is a lot of work to do in the week ahead. I have basically 1 week to do all the work. 3 Major assignments!

In other news, I just downloaded three songs by John Denver. "Perhaps Love," "For You" and "Annie's Song." They are lovely songs.
