Canadian journalist Michelle Lang and the Canadian Forces soldiers who died this week in an explosion will be remembered for their courage and dedication to their necessary work in Afghanistan.
Justice will be served some day. Perhaps those Taliban fanatics who planted the bomb will end up in prison or a grave somewhere in Afghanistan. It may happen. But in a war where the enemy kills by stealth, hides among civilians and fades away into the night, perhaps this will not happen soon.
But in the larger picture, justice will come when the Afghan people, with the help of the international community, drive these murderous thugs from their land and reclaim that modest measure of peace and freedom that they deserve.
Justice is coming.
