It is hard to know what to say, Mrzzy. My heart aches for you. I was an embassy brat once, and, as you know, we all feel a personal connection whenever anything happens to any one of us, anywhere.
For one thing, it's a small world, and, especially over time, everyone has some sort of line of connection to everyone else. For another, the issues connected with Lebanon and Iran have affected everyone for a really long time, and then, of course, it could have easily been my Dad. So regardless of whether the rest of the world remembers, or not, I will never forget.
