Prayers, good thoughts, what ever you do. It's a tragic day today.

A Marine helecopter has crashed in Iraq killing 31. The helecopter was carrying personnel from the 1st Marine Division. More details continue to come in. God Bless our Military and their families. My heart breaks for them.

Also - there has been a deady train crash in Los Feliz CA. Two commuter trains collided just outside of LA. They are also saying that a freight train was involved. So far they have confirmed 3 dead but that number is growning. This story continues to unfold.

In my days of commuting to Chicago I was involved in a derailment. No one was injured, and no other trains were involved, but it was still frightening. I cannot begin to imagine this.

My prayers go to all those involved. It puts everything in perspective doesn't it.

My son in law flies helicopters...in...Iraq...in the area west of Baghdad...I finally heard from my daughter that he had called her to say he was safe. Deep sigh of relief at that point.

Oh Koolaid, I knew he was over there but wasn't aware of that. Thank GOD he's alright. I'm sure those were some dark and scary hours.
