Attacks in Sri Lanka

#1

:frowning: this sounds awful. 8 blasts so far, some of which were at Christian sites celebrating Easter, and at least 130 dead. Military has just imposed curfew “until things settle down”

Though I realise they’re not very helpful my thoughts go out to the victims and their families. I don’t know if there’s anybody in the DiS community that lives in Sri Lanka or has family/friends there but if they do I hope they are all safe and unharmed.

Always good to remember that there are also lots of good people in this world.

Feel so sad and defeated on a day which should be the exact opposite of those things.

There’s nothing I can write that here that doesn’t seem to trivialise something this unimaginably awful. I will pray and pray and pray for the victims and all those around the world who are prevented from living their faith through terror or persecution.
