As I wake up to a picture-perfect morning of freshly fallen snow that coats each tree limb with exquisite white garlands, I am jerked back to harsh reality by several breaking stories on the other side of the world:
CNN - Ministry backtracks on Bhutto sunroof claims
The plot sickens - Bhutto hours from exposing vote-rigging details!!! (Star)
Star - Kenyans seeking refuge in church burned to death.
More at the Daily Dish - Kenya's Tribal Unraveling. (H/T Daimnation!)
Star - U.S. Diplomat shot, killed in Sudan.
But we in Canada aren't free from it either:
Canoe - Gun violence rocks Calgary.
CTV - Slain girl is daughter of T.O. police officers.
Sometimes all you can do is pray.
And be grateful for the small moments of peace and joy that you find in each day.
