Wal-Mart worker dies after shoppers knock him down
« on: November 28, 2008, 02:44:30 PM »
On this Black Friday, a Wal-Mart temporary worker was trampled by over 200 people who entered the store in search of bargains.  May the Lord have mercy on the soul of the deceased worker and his family.  Amen!

Memory eternal - may the Lord receive him into a better place, where there is neither pain nor suffering, neither greed nor callousness, but only light and love and life everlasting.

Memory eternal.
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

It's not limited to Wal-Mart, either: Two people were shot and killed in a Toys 'R' Us. Police are still working out the details, and it may be gang-related rather than shopping-related, but it's tragic all the same.

My deepest public apologies for my inappropriate outburst.  Indignation might be good, but this is a place for simple prayer.

Lord, have mercy.
