When terrorism hits home, even from thousands of miles away

Many of us have been shocked by the news of the terrorism and violence that is happening over in India right now. But, since most of us are thousands of miles away, the most we experience are the images on TV or the photos in the newspaper on online.

I was sitting here watching the TV news this evening and the newscasters were talking about the one Canadian who was killed in Mumbai. It was a doctor I used to work with many years ago, Dr. Michael Moss.

I can't describe the shock I felt. I wasn't close with him, he was a coworker who I came in contact with from time to time, so the feeling is truly of shock and disbelief. It turns out he was in the final week of a one month holiday.
