a time to pause

london bombings
Originally uploaded by dream awakener.

when i heard about the bombings in london, my heart broke. it broke for those who lost loved ones, and it broke because i was reminded once again of the endless cycle of violence that has been going on since the fall.

tragedies often cause us to pause and think a little more deeply about life, ultimate meaning and our own calling. take a moment to reflect this week about what is most important to you and then ask God to help you live in alignment with the primal purposes that he put in your heart.

sometimes our lives are awakened when we have a more vivid understanding of the reality of tragedy. so i would encourage you to check out the interactive article at the right hand side of the new york times website entitled "attacks in london - an interactive feature", as well as read a blog entitled "surviving a terrorist attack" written by justin howard, a 35 year old software engineer from cambridge, england, one of the first survivors to write a blog.

I agree with your extreme sorrow over this incident. It's an unfortunate way for the British to better understand what prompted us to go to war in Afghanistan and Iraq.
For radical Muslim extremists, you are either one of them or you are the enemy.
