A Violent Start
From Iraq to Central Africa Republic, to South Sudan, to Thailand, to Egypt, to Lebanon, to Syria, to Russia, to Bangladesh, to Somalia, to Afghanistan, to India and to Pakistan and beyond, 2014 has started with violent episodes. In South Sudan alone, estimates are that 10,000 people have died in less than a month of conflict with many gruesome individual incidents involving machetes. And it is still January. Peace on Earth? What peace?...Consider on this Sunday, January 12, 2014.
