I find these deaths affecting me more with each passing month; as a parent with twenty-something kids, I can barely imagine the pain of losing them.

And knowing that this pain is multiplied by a thousand the world over on any given day...

It's difficult, Ralph. The world's heartaches are many and grievous. I would not trade the pain for a hardened heart, but, oh, I have to force myself to keep posting. I don't want to fact it day after day. I want to change it but feel that all I can do is keep bearing witness.

Lord, have mercy.

Paul, thank you for bearing witness.
