      I agree Frizz, i saw it in the news, 92 souls lost, that too just because one person didn’t get an opportunity to be heard, or he felt was wronged…when will the carnage end!

      I pray for peace to the departed soul, and may their families get the courage to face their worse fears and difficult times..Amen!
