Candlelight vigil in DC

There is a candle light vigil tomorrow in front of the Jordanian Embassy in DC between 4-6 PM. Here is the e-mail:

  1. Natasha, please accept my heartfelt condolences for this trajedy. I always regard Amman as a second home next to my Baghdad.
    Nothing in the world can justify attacks against civilians, whether they be Jordanian, Iraqi, Palestinian or from any other country, race or creed in the world.
    I see tragedies like these everyday in my hometown, to the point that it ceases to be shocking any more.
    Amman will be fine again like it used to be.

  2. I am really sorry to hear of the terrible bombing in Amman. This bombing mania seems to be a contagious form of madness which is now sweeping through the Muslim world.
    The reaction of some Jordanians is a little surprising – as though this was something new and unheard of. Do people in Jordan not know about all the bombings in Iraq, Egypt, Bali, London, Madrid, and Algeria?

  3. I had hoped that the occasion be a joyous rather than a solemn one, but it was good to see Natasha (we met only once before) and meet Jeff at the candle light vigil in front of the Embassy in Washington. It was also good to show a little support for victims of the unspeakable atrocity in Jordan.
    While at work yesterday, I received an alert about an explosion in Jordan. I immediately switched to the NY Times website to find details, but could not find any. I tried a few websites I usually visit for news, but could not get much detail. I switched to Natasha’s site and there it was, a little update on the situation. It is a tribute to Natasha’s journalistic skills and her love for Jordan that one can find the latest update ahead of many resourceful sources.
    Thank you Natasha for your efforts and updates.
    All the best,
