"CAIRO — The death toll surpassed 500 on Thursday from Egypt’s bloodiest crackdown on supporters of its deposed Islamist president, as violent new protests erupted in the country and world condemnation widened, including an angry response by President Obama and calls for a suspension of European economic aid."NYT, 8/15/13
 
In one part of the world, killings, murder, mayhem. In another, the passage of peaceful daily life, established routines, flourishing wild flowers and extraordinary views of mountains and skies. Who chooses where to be born and where to grow up? What explanation to account for the harsh injustices distributed on young and old? Impossible to ignore. So brief the time to love and be loved. Yet such unimaginable grief pervades. P8020856
