As many of you know, we had a terrible train wreck here in the Southland. It was about 10 miles from here, where I live. Many people died in the crash, which is now being attributed to human error. And while watching the news brings a sense of horror, the phone calls have started coming in now, a couple of days later. Either someone you know is dead, or you know someone who lost a loved one. Which is crazy, when you consider that only twenty or so people died, and there are over 100,000 people in the immediate community where the train stop was located.
My heart goes out to all those who have been affected by this horrible, preventable tragedy.
