At least, I think it’s Wednesday. Weeks that start with a holiday Monday always throw me into confusion about what day of the week it actually is. To me Mondays are days I have to go back towork. If I don’t have to work, then it’s not a Monday. Anyways….
Humbling: Following brutal attacks on a Christian church in Egypt on New Year’s Eve that killed 23 worshipers, moderate Muslims offered themselves as human shields to protect Coptic Christians at their Christmas Eve services.
