Random Thoughts: On the Attack in Kabul & #IWD2017

The morning began for me on a sad note as the Military Hospital in Kabul was attacked by gunmen disguised as Doctors attacked and killed over 30 people.   I have a hard time understanding a mentality that drives such evil acts.  It underscores that Afghanistan continues to face profound challenges.   This hospital is in the middle of the Heavily-Guarded Diplomatic Quarter.   I understand most were patients.     I am seeing reports that Daesh (ISIL) is claiming responsibility as some 9 cities have been surrounded by the Taliban.   

Today, though, is also a day to celebrate.  It is International Women's Day and A Facebook Friend posted this on this International Women's Day 2017 with this tribute to all the women of the World.  Google also blew me away with a Doodle to celebrate as it reminded us all that we must "....Celebrate the women who inspire us every day. #HerVoiceIsMyVoice... :
