It was a horrendous attack. I will not say more here about it because I think Arun's post is perfect and he is updating it with links and commentary as more information comes in. I invite you to head over there and read about what happened:

After I posted this I had an urge to pick up St. Augustine and find this passage. Not sure why it inspires me but I thought I would share parts of it with you. Eternal questions that we still struggle to with :
"Where then is evil, and what is its source, and how has it crept into the Creation? What is its root, what is its seed? Can it be that it is wholly without being? But why should we fear and be on guard against what is not? Or if our fear of it is groundless, then our very fear is itself an evil thing...Whence then is evil, since God who is good made all things good?"
