shock and grief

One downside to being at camp is that we are basically isolated from the rest of the world while we are there. Newspapers, internet access, radio, and television are rarely seen there, and we rely on word from friends to keep us informed. As a result, while we were all aware that there was "something" going on in London this morning, I had to wait until now (almost 4:00 p.m.) until I could come up to my parents' house, check the web and get some details on the terrible tragedy that struck London's citizens this morning. Somehow, it makes the quote to the left seem somewhat trivial, yet at the same time all the more important and full of truth. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.
