a loss of a great work of historic Islamic architecture

minaret

While nothing is more important than the safety of human life, I was saddened to hear that today a 1,000 year old minaret was destroyed in the Syrian city of Aleppo.  It was part of a mosque that was built during the 11th century.  Just another reason to continue to hope for peace in Syria.
