Yesterday.

Yesterday many Australians had only one thing on their minds – the hanging of Nguyen Tuong Van. It was not possible to watch TV, listen to the news or glance at the papers without being haunted by images of his mother or his ghostly clad grieving twin. We seem to have so many unforgettable painful moments these days. I have the ABC Online as my homepage. Today Nguyen Tuong Van is no longer in the top ABC stories. How quickly our nation moves on. I read this entry by Geoff Bullock called 'Today', posted at Signposts. It is a sobering reflection on the death of Nguyen Tuong Van, and our 'ungrace'.
