rosy Rosie update

Rosie made it back to the US from Lebanon. She's in the photo if you click it.

Rosana adds that media coverage in the U.S. gives the impression that Israel is largely bombing the south, the Hezbollah stronghold. "They are bombing east, west, north and south, even Christian towns. Between Hezbollah and Israel, no one is on the side of the Lebanese people," she says. "I'm praying for a cease fire. I really can't stand the thought of any more innocent people being killed."

Though I'm glad she's safe, I have to remember that there's no place for the average Lebanese to escape to.

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to buy the world a Coke
And keep it company
That's the Real Thing (TM)
