T and I were touched by the following story this weekend:

Egypt's Coptic Christian community suffered a terrible attack on New Year's Eve at Saint's Church in Alexandria, where 21 people were killed.  In response to the horrific violence, thousands of Muslims attended the Christmas Mass on Jan 8th (the day of the Orthodox Christmas celebration) to stand in solidarity with their Coptic countrymen.  

The article is a touching recount of the the brotherly act of solidarity.  

Our prayers are with our close Coptic friends, their families in Egypt, and their country.
