A New York Rabbi, visiting his family in South Florida, was gunned down yesterday morning on his way to the synagogue. Community members from his synagogue talked to the press last night. Some is saying it was a robbery gone bad; others a hate crime. Regardless the intent, senseless act has torn apart a family and terrorized a community. Praying for those who are affected by all too many senseless acts taking place everywhere. My prayer may be small and timid but Jesus’s love, strength and healing know no boundaries.

The Daily Life of the Uyghurs in Kashgar (July/August 2014)

China’s Muslim Uyghur ethnic group faces cultural and religious restrictions by the Chinese government. Getty Images photographer Kevin Frayer offers a rare glimpse into daily life in Kashgar following recent unrest. In the last week of July, nearly 100 people have been killed in Xinjiang Province in what authorities say is terrorism, but exiled Uyghur groups and human rights activists say the government’s repressive policies in Xinjiang have provoked unrest, a claim Beijing denies. Kashgar, where Getty photographer Kevin Frayer made these pictures, is at the heart of all this

Beautiful, subtle but powerful lighting. Photographers do speak with their lights.

There is such a thing as being a foreigner, but not in the sense implied by passports. Foreigners exist, to be sure, but they may be found only in places where it would be impossible to discover a single policeman or a single immigration official—in the field of the intellect. A man who achieves anything great in any province of the mind is, inevitably, a foreigner, and cannot admit others to his province.
