For Those In Mumbai

Thankfully, the standoff in Mubai is now over. What a blessing that is. As more information comes out, it seems to be worse than originally feared, at least in terms of the perpetrators.

But for those who were lost or wounded, and for those personnel who were working to resolve this issue, my friend, Topher, has created a website at which people are invited to leave words of condolence and support. Here is the text, including Topher's opening comment:

Terror in Mumbai: Pray For Those Affected

Terror affects everyone; not just those who live in a terror attack zone. This site is dedicated to the people of India and the people around the world who were affected by the terror attacks in Mumbai.

This is a safe place to leave a thought, prayer, or condolences for those who lost their lives and the families of the victims of this terror attack.

Please be repectful of all who post here and remember that this is not a political forum.

It is a forum for persons of all faiths to express their feelings and emotions about this horrific event…consider it a condolence book and post only what you would write if you were attending a funeral or memorial service.

I’ll get this started:

My heart goes out to to the victims of this terror attack; to those families who are mourning the loss of a loved one today, and to the families of those who were wounded. May the Creator help all those hurting in India and around the world to find solace and comfort during this time.

If you feel inclined, please go over to Topher's site and leave a comment for thos who were lost. Thank you.

And I leave you with this video from Clannad as a meditation piece:

Well, I'd sure be interested in how you arrived at THAT conclusion, Chimpy! I mean, I can't stand that cheating, lying, misogynistic, homophobic, arrogant, manipulative jerk, but the attacks in Mumbai??
