Bombay/Mumbai - now its personal

One of the Rabbi's I work with knew the Rabbi at the Chabad house in Mumbai, and his family. He came in this morning looking a little out-or-sorts because he had been at an all-night prayer vigil.

I consider this a cowardly attack on free people, it is little different for me than if this had happened down the street. I don't really have anything else to say, except if you were wondering if this had touched someone you know, it has. This Rabbi from work is a dear, dear friend. He's devastated, and he works with dying people all day. It's not like he's suddenly come to terms with mortality or anything, this is just senseless hatred.

By the way, every native Indian I know says "Bombay."
