Seeking Justice...

Today is cold and rainy, so after my morning meeting and running errands I stayed in and wrote an exciting paper on Francis of Assisi and read Greek vocabularly for a test - but I also took the time to write a protest letter to the Prime Minister of China. At the end of September mountaineers in the Himalayas witnessed Chinese border guards firing on a group of about 70 Tibetans trying to cross into Nepal. At least two were killed, nine children and a man taken into Chinese custody, and 20 unaccounted for. So international voices are needed to protest against these detentions and demand the release of the Tibetans and an independent investigation. There is an urgent appeal at with more details.
