The cover of the New York Times yesterday showed Russian troops rolling into northern Georgia, and I woke up this morning to find that fighting has begun and 1500 casualties have already been reported.
Georgia, of course, also borders Turkey, where Mike and I are supposed to be vacationing next week.
My heart goes out to the families of those who have already died, and I pray this conflict ends quickly and justly. Though I don't know how often the two go hand in hand.
