Terrorists at work

Posted By on Wed, Nov 26, 2008 at 3:05 PM

Heard about the terrorist attacks in India today? Teams targeted luxury hotels in Mumbai and killed dozens of British and American visitors. Hostages have been taken. 

I have always thoughts these sorts of attacks are the most fiendish because of how readily they inspire fear that anyone, anywhere can be a target.

I had dreamed of going to India this January because of my long fascination with the country. As a child, I pored incessantly over the scrapbooks my mother made during her Army service in India in World War II. She met my father, also a soldier, in Delhi. We couldn't swing the trip this winter, but vowed to keep trying. I can't decide at the moment whether my thoughts have changed.
