Monthly Snapshot is a series of posts written for my sister Natalie and my brother Michael, who are currently on multi-month missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon), and for anyone else away from regular news sources. This is a quick snap-shot of current events and culture to give them an idea of everything that has gone on while they are out and about.
June 5, 2014 – Another shooting, this time in Washington at Seattle Pacific University. While there was one person killed and three injured, several students were able to subdue the shooter while he was reloading his shotgun, preventing further injury.
US Army Soldier Sgt. Bowe Bergdah is freed after five years of being a P.O.W. in a Taliban prison in Afghanistan. The U.S. traded five detainees from Guantanamo to free him, creating questions of the negotiation. There are also questions of whether Sgt. Bergdah was attempting to desert when he was captured.
Syria and Ukraine are still in turmoil, and now a small group of dissidents in Iraq are rioting against the government. I am sure we will find peace at some time.
