personal reflections on human rights...and other stuff

International Peace Day, Shattered

September 21 marks the International Day of Peace. UN Secretary-General marked the occasion today by saying "Let us fight for peace and defend it with all our might."

The devastating violence in the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi is a heartbreaking reminder that we are so far away from such peace.

Among the images of the violence today, one of love and strength: a woman holding on to a young boy and placing a comforting hand on another's elbow.

I won't let go.
