Conflict in South Ossetia

August 8, 2008

There has been an escalation of aggression in the Georgian region of South Ossetia, whic declared an unrecognized separation in the 1990s. Russian forces have bombed a Georgian air base, and around 150 Russian armored vehicles have entered the region.

My sister-in-law and two nieces are visiting family in the Georgian capital of Tblisi, and because of the violence are flying out tomorrow through Moscow to the Ukraine. Please keep good thoughts, or prayers if you prefer, for their safe return home.
