    As some of you may have heard, there has been an attack in a school in Peshawar by the Taliban. I believe that over 140 people have died, and many of them are children. :( If you can, please take some time to pray for these children and these families or send good thoughts.

    Our flag has been at half mast--such an unspeakable tragedy.

    It sounds like the Beslan massacre. Absolutely horrifying that even terrorists can think this sort of thing is a good idea.

    I've seen the footage and read reports and interviews, but something simply will not allow my mind to comprehend this. It is too much for one community to absorb. I hope the people of Peshawar can feel that we are trying to share in their grief.
