Tom McNamara..sharing an interesting piece from NBC:
MAKHACHKALA, Dagestan -- A bell rang, and several hundred students made their way to the auditorium at the top of the stairwell on a fall day.
It was assembly period at the Lyceum 5 school in Dagestan's capital city, the heart of Russia's terrorist problem, and it wasn't long before the mood turned somber. The students were gathered to remember two of their own who had been killed in a bombing. Framed photographs of the boys, who had died playing in the street, sat on a table near the stage.
