Umm Naser Tragedy

I missed this story yesterday: "Sewage 'tsunami' kills five in Gaza" (Source). I was looking on Al Jazeera for a different perspective on the news of our sailors being held in Iran.

As it was yesterday's news on the BBC site, I had to go looking for it: "Sewage flood causes Gaza deaths". (Source)

I don't know why I was drawn to this article, but I think it is the empathy. I can't empathise, only sympathise, with the gun fights and physical violence of the civil strife that some people live with in their daily life. But I can empathise when the world goes wrong on this level.

Look back kindly upon their lives and upon the difference they made to yours.

I was going to do one of my usual tasteless comments but one of my mates comes from, and still lives in that area. Hope he's ok.
