It was after 10:00 last night when our daughter, Abbie, phoned from her college dorm room. She asked me if I knew any of the names of the four members of Christian Peacemaker Teams who have been held hostage. Tom Fox was the only name I could remember. Abbie had just seen on her internet news home page the story about an American hostage being found dead and she read me the first part of the news report. We talked some more and I told her I preferred getting this news from her than in some other way. The thing I didn’t think to say at the time was that Tom Fox’s death had more honor, purpose, significance than most of the American deaths in Iraq since we invaded that country.
