Serving the Least For All the Right Reasons

Abby Zimet

It's hard to know what to say about the senseless massacre
of ten members of an international medical team in Afghanistan.  Some,
like eye doctor and team leader Tom Little, had spent decades and raised
families there. Christian-based but non-proselytizing, they were trying
to help people desperately in need of it in a far more legitimate way
than the thousands of lethal U.S. military forces who sometimes likewise
lay claim to that end. More on those killed here and here.

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.

If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
