Baby Fatima found in garbage in Iraq...

A time to weep?
Being an orphan is bad enough.. being an orphan of parents who were brutally murdered is worse.. If you have small children, imagine if you and your spouse disappeared, and imagine how your little ones would feel all alone. Our son cried for hours this spring during a flight to Turkey, one where I stayed behind in the US. "Where's Baba?!" "Ben Babami istiyorum!" rings in my ears, and I wasn't even there. So do the math. Fatima is too small to remember these days, but that doesn't mean she does not feel a huge emptiness. We feel it for her, this much is certain.
