Don’t Look Now, But…

June 11, 2017

I haven’t blogged anything lately and ran across this piece. Makes me sick …



When 22 people died outside a concert hall in Manchester, England, the media coverage was wall to wall.  The cry went up that something must be done! Journalists followed the investigation.  Press briefings were scheduled regularly. With broken hearts, we pored over color photographs of the victims, many of them only children, and we listened to bystanders describe their horror.  The world grieved as the story unfolded for a week.

Five days later, 29 Christians in Egypt died when terrorists attacked their bus. Forty-two others were seriously injured and the assassins got away.  That story vanished in less than 48 hours.  No color photos.  No interviews with authorities. No tragic details.

Here’s what you probably never heard.  The Christian group of parents, grandparents, and children were traveling in two buses to pray at a monastery. Their vehicles were stopped by terrorists outside the town of Minya.  After the buses were…

    I have always wondered what some Christians here in America would do if they were given the choices these poor people were given by their fanatic captors? Great article! Needs to be seen by everybody who can read and understand anything.

    Exactly. Words don’t describe. Though this post was a while ago, I was just watching the Vietnam series on PBS this week.
