Tragedy beyond comprehension...

This photo from Baghdad, shows a mother comforting her daughter injured in Tuesday's bomb blasts.

Twin car bombs tore through a leading Baghdad university Tuesday as students left classes, killing at least 65 students, in the deadliest attack in Iraq in nearly two months.

I keep thinking what it would be like if bombs exploded at the entrance to one of our local universities, such as Boston University, and 65 students were killed. It is hard to really comprehend what is now happening in Baghdad. The situation has reached the boiling point and there is nothing anyone in Washington can do about it.
