Portrait of the Tsarnaev Family

     An Angry Mother (Zubeidat Tsarnaev)

In the quiet and dark of a Minnesota morning, I read slowly the Washington Post’s extended account of the Tsarnaev family and followed carefully the timeline of its beginnings and its movement toward the destruction in Boston. I was left saddened and trembling and wondering how the rapid slide toward tragedy could have been circumvented.

A Washington Post story of the Tsarnaev family
This is a remarkably thorough account of the family and how the two brothers got lost on their way toward fulfilling the American dream, showing that, for some, the process doesn’t work. A number of reporters and researchers contributed to the story. I recommend it to you. It includes some remarkable photographs and graphics.
