Thanksgiving Day 11/26/09

ON THANKSGIVING, REMEMBER MUMBAI, one year ago today.

Remember the Philippines, two days ago. Remember Jakarta. Remember Nairobi and Dar-es-Salaam. Remember Madrid. Remember Jerusalem. Remember London. Remember 9/11. … Remember the concept of facing reality, even as we pray for a perfect world.
