Thoughts and Prayers Going to Lara Logan

Courtesy: NY Times
I normally like to keep this blog light, but something is weighing heavy on my heart. It's the news that CBS reporter Lara Logan was viciously attacked on Friday while covering the political unrest in Egypt. According to CBS, Logan and her crew were surrounded by a mob of 200 people. She got separated from her crew, and "suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before a group of women and about 20 Egyptian soldiers saved her."

I first heard about this awful attack last night, and I cried. Such brutality against women is disgusting, and the fact that I can relate to her being a reporter and wanting to be where the action is, made it even more unsettling.

Logan is an extremely talented and beautiful reporter. She could easily be a main anchor in any market, but instead, decided to take a dangerous assignment that has sent her to the middle of war zones. For that, I admire her.

I hope that Lara can heal physically and emotionally, and eventually can get back to doing the job she loves.
