When Past and Present Evil Collide

Dalya Lemkus - May soon her
family be able to look at
her picture without crying.
Sometimes all I can do to come to grips with a terrible event is to write about it, especially when the way a day turns from good to bad is so stunning, and when the coincidence of subject matter is so sad as it happened this Monday. Tablet just published my resulting article:

Fatal West Bank Stabbing Hits Close to Home


  1. I often turn to writing to help me sort through complex feelings... or at least give them a good, hard, look.

    I'm off to read your article now. Thanks for sharing it on the #StoryDam linky! :)

  2. That is so sad! And the way it tied in with your book... *sigh*

    1. Tui, it was an eerie confluence of events.

  3. I am so sorry about your friend's tragic loss of her beautiful niece.

  4. I'm very sorry for your friend. It's heartwrenching.
