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!

Posters, PLEASE!  This is a prayer thread.  No more commentary about materialism or greed.

To allow an avenue for such commentary apart from the prayers of this board, I opened this new thread in FFA - Non-Religious Topics:

Commentary on "Wal-Mart worker dies after shoppers knock him down"  Please take any commentary and criticisms of the parties involved there.  Thank you for your cooperation in keeping the Prayer Forum devoted solely to prayer.

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.
