For the lives of the Ambassador Chris Stevens and the four other diplomats (all names not yet released) lost in Libya today, due to an act of hatred against Americans.
I truly have no words, but it really hit home today, as we all call ourselves one big family, and for the first time today, I felt that. We are far away from the events, but it could have been Karl there. And though it wasn’t Karl, some other foreign service families are now mourning the loss of a loved one.
I wrote earlier this month about the sacrifices that come with this lifestyle, I just wish we all weren’t reminded of it so soon, and to such an extent.
