Last night, at the train station in front of my house, someone jumped in front of the train.  I was taking my sons to their mothers, and we crossed ourselves (I teach the boys always to cross themselves when they see an amubulance, for whoever needs it).  I know nothing else, except that the person and his/her loved ones are in need of prayer.

Lord have mercy, and memory eternal!

Also, as someone had posted on this, pray for the conductor.  I imagine, although to all reports there was nothing he could do, that it weighs heavy on him.  God grant him peace!

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

"Lord have mercy."

May God grant us sensitivity to the pain and suffering of those around us. May He give us the courage to confess our despair and seek help when we feel hopeless. May Our Lord help us to use our words and actions to lift others up rather than to tear them down.

Life is so fragile, and our hearts can so easily be broken. I pray that God would help us all. "His mercy endureth forever."

-Amen-
