Tears for Mumbai
The Times of India is reporting that at least 80 people have been killed and 900 injured in terrorist attacks in Mumbai, including an attack on the famed Taj Hotel (1903). This story has special resonance for me as I stayed at the Taj in 2004 during my memorable trip to India. I fell in love with Mumbai and this historic hotel made such an indelible impression on me. I feel so sad for this great city and for the people who are suffering the senseless and incomprehensible slaughter of innocents. My heart goes out to all of those affected.
