War is terrible and Mars is an angry and vengeful god. War respects no one and too often some of those who we can ill afford to lose are victims of the madness created in the chaos of war. How do we register the loss of someone like Margaret Hassan, the brave and kind English woman who spent years in Iraq bringing succor to those in that land? Margaret's life is an example of all that is good about human beings and her death is an example of the worst. We offer up our thoughts and our prayers for her soul and that her family will find peace some day soon. And we give thanks for the good that she did on this earth and a wish that our time here will be as well spent. Bless you Margaret Hassan and God speed.
Now for your thoughts....
