2008_08_garus.jpgRussia has just about opened up a second front in its fight with Georgia and the U.N. is holding an emergency session to discuss the situation. There has been fighting since last Thursday, when Georgia tried to regain control of a separatist province, which prompted Russia to send in forces to support the separatists. NYC has the largest Georgian enclave in the U.S., and immigrants were gathering to pray and phoning relatives still there, hoping they remained safe as the small country is up against the Russian Army. An 11-year-old told the NY Times, “New York has a bigger population than the whole entire nation of Georgia. Think about if New York was getting bombed, how would you feel?” [Photograph of a Georgian woman grieving her child's death in Gori by Sergei Grits/AP]
