during rush hour yesterday two red line Metro Trains collided at the DC/Maryland border.  Six were killed and many were injured.  Memory eternal and prayers for those who survived and their families.

According to this morning's news the toll is now 9 people were killed.  They found more in the wreckage in the night.  :'(

May they rest in peace.

Lord have mercy!  Memory eternal!

Please prayer for my sons: their mother, in violation of court order, took them to DC.  I know they were there yesterday as they called me, but as, in violation again of court order, I have no contact information for them and do not know if they were involved, or anyway of finding out until I hear from them again.

Five names have been released. All adults who lived in the MD-DC-VA area. 

There are stories and photos in the Washington Post, including one that there was an Anglican priest in the car that climbed up and broke.  He was leading the Lord's Prayer and trying to help a woman trapped under seats.

Lord, Save Your people and Bless Your Inheritance.

Remember the 9 souls who reposed in yesterday's DC Metro collision.  Grant them eternal rest and strengthen and comfort their families in the difficult days ahead.

Amen!

Thank you and everyone else: I heard from my sons today (it's been over two days) and they are fine, Glory to God!

Lord have mercy on those not so fortunate!
