Take a Moment for Poland this Morning
I received this note from a Buddhist community sangha member this morning:
Please, remember in your practice those who died this morning in a plane crash near Smolensk, Russia, including Poland’s top authorities: the President, his wife, ministers, senators, Parliament deputies, military commanders, bishops, NGO and charity leaders. Over 80 people. They went to Russia to pay homage to over twenty thousand Polish teachers, officers and intellectuals shot dead in the back of their heads by Russian communists at Katyn and other locations during World War II. Now they are all dead.
We are stunned here. People are crying in the streets.
With thanks and appreciation,
