Mourning Tom Fox; Celebrating His Witness

Those who read this are probably already aware of the death of our Friend Tom Fox. I unite with this statement at http://www.cpt.org/iraq/response/06-10-03statement.htm by his Christian Peacemaker Team Colleagues.

I do not believe that any life or any death is ever "in vain". Certainly, neither Tom Fox's life on earth and nor his heroic peacemaker's death could be described that way. He was/is a hero of the spiritual life; a Christian whose faith was lived and not just proclaimed. A peacemaker who advanced love and understanding while he was with us and whose memory and living spirit will continue to do so.

Though I never met Tom Fox, I feel deeply sad today.

After many requests, we posted a memorial page where friends of Tom can post their prayers, memories, and messages.
