I have a penchant for quoting LOTR each day, and on one particularly rough kiddie day, I told Nikirj "Osgiliath is overrun."
It is an appropriate metaphor for our life here!
I don't think it really matters if it is over there over here.. wherever it may be.. It is hard to not react to the senseless violence and total disregard for human life.
Ohh btw the anonymous was me!! Cam
