The Seattle morning sky echoed the shock and sadness I felt today. Murderers have taken lives suddenly and set in motion reverberations that take lifetimes to quell. Close by here in Washington three generations of family have been killed by one of their own, and half way around the world the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto has left the whole of Pakistani society reeling, and the world grieving. The ripples from such violence touch us all. May those who lost dear ones to violence here and in Pakistan be supported through their grief as they attempt to mend their shattered lives. Our hearts go out to all who are suffering personally from this violence. May love thread its way through and bind up the wounds in so many hearts with truth, justice, and peace.
