Be it how it will, do right now.

An Abomination

I refuse to taint these pages by re-posting news stories or links to websites detailing the recent Peace Corps news out of South Africa.  A simple google search will suffice for those looking for more info.  I will, however, paste this excerpt from the Editors’ Note in this month’s Peace Corps South Africa newsletter.

There are too many injustices in the world to list, though, and those offenses too myriad to categorize, too overwhelming to detail. This is, unfortunately, another instance of humanity’s sad talent for tragedy. However, it is not a proclivity, and we believe that humankind ultimately bends toward goodness. Sins like these are shocking not simply because of their nature but also because they are uncommon.

I am appalled. It is no hyperbole: this is an abomination.
