had a long day today. I spent my daylight hours working on Sri Lanka
. I'm amazed at how high-tech and low-tech converge - satellite images competing with photos of desperate people pulling carts on a beautiful, pristine beach. It's really a challenge sifting through all the information, from the world's largest hostage rescue
to Tamil genocide
. I have a job that is satisfying and heart-rending at the same time. I hope that I don't become so hardened that the people and situations I'm writing about become mere abstractions.
I felt like stuffing my face with a cheeseburger on my way home but I restrained myself. Yay me.
