it is hard to hit any key, let alone the right key on the board.
My friend Z has been injured in the attacks in Brussels. He lives there. He's a good, very good, decent, honest, caring individual. He's a Quaker, a committed pacifist. He has spent much of his life in developing countries working on hydro-engineering projects. His work has often been done under difficult and very dangerous conditions. He is the man who has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for our mutual friend who runs the centre for unaccompanied children in Africa. He cares about people in a way very few people do.
Brussels should have been safe. Yes, I know any of us could have an accident at any time but this was no accident. It was a deliberate act of senseless violence against ordinary people going about their lives. This is about killing people, innocent people who have done the killers no harm at all.
It makes no sense.
In her e-mail to me his wife says he will recover but that's not the point. It shouldn't have happened.
Keep him in your thoughts please.
