Teen Hero Dies Tackling a Suicide Bomber

Ordinarily I try to keep this blog light-hearted and apolitical. But really, this is just too much. When kids are made to sacrifice their lives to protect their friends from a conflict they have nothing to do with, it is simply too much.

So go home tonight and hug your family. Tell them you love them. Because it is a big, scary world out there, and that might just be the one thing that protects them.
