    I was watching some Indian news just a while ago on Dish Network. In the background of the reporter were the Twin Towers drapped in the American flag whick in turn were in a background of a big American Flag. On the top it read "God Bless America". In India it was already 9-11 I believe.

    I dont know, it just gave me a warm feeling.

    Then the news is about a train crash in India. I think 60 people are dead and about 200 more are injured. They had scenes from the accident and it was nothing one would want to look at. Mangled bodies could be seen inside the wreckage, etc. I mean the whole scene was just horrible. Entire carriages were piled on top of each other. Apparently the train accident happened late at night in a really remote area. Help could not be sent for about six hours or so. So some carriages were dangling in the air (fell from a small brige I think) with people still in them. Just waiting for the inevitable I guess.

    Entire families just waiting....I dont think I can imagine anything worse.

    Then they proceeded to show what was going on right now. Bodies were everywhere. Now they are suspecting sabotage. This happened close to Nepal I think. I am not familiar with the whole situation, but I believe some separatist movement is going on there? The tracks were messed with and that is what caused the accident.

    In the midst of all this the news shows a little girl (maybe about 5-6)...she was sitting next to a baby lying on the floor....This baby and girl were both crying. The girl was trying to comfor the little baby and...

    I'm guessing the parents are dead. God I hope not. I dont know why I'm posting this hear. I'm hoping we can all say a prayer for these two kids and all the others that died or are hurt. Please...


    I think they (the separatist movement) did this to coincide with 9-11. The whole situation got me thinking about last year. Just got me wondering why exactly people cant get along. I mean do these terrorist not realize what they are doing? Two kids crying and trying to comfort each other just got to me I guess.


    On this anniversay of 9-11 I would just like to say that I'm sorry if I've ever offended anyone based on race, religion, sexual orientation or anything of that nature.
