I pondered blogging this through the afternoon after reading it in the Sydney Morning Herald but couldn't bring myself to write about it - It seemed inappropriate to look as such a tragic event through the lens of blogging. CNet then got me rethinking. This is truly a tragic story but if nothing else it reminds us of how powerful this medium is for telling the story and reaching out to friends and family. And, what amazing courage and strength people have in putting fingers to keyboard and laying tragedy bare for us to read.
My thoughts are with the Van Ryn family.
