Over 100 HIV Experts And Advocates May Have Been On Board Crashed Malaysian Plane

The field of HIV/AIDS research has suffered a savage blow as reports suggest that as many as 108 leading researchers and advocates within the field were on board the Malaysia Airlines flight that that crashed yesterday. While the loss of any individual in such an instance is an extreme tragedy, the situation is particularly saddening given the loss of knowledge and expertise that was dedicated to tackling this dire global health problem...
"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus

From what I have read, these leading AIDS researchers may have been on the threshold of a major breakthrough.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

So . . . are you saying that God shot the plane down?



I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

That god would be to petty of a buly to bother with then. Just saying
Beaucoup de ces dieux ont péri
C'est sur eux que pleurent les saules
Le grand Pan l'amour Jésus-Christ
Sont bien morts et les chats miaulent...

I heard on the news that there were a lot of Dutch people on the plane.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Was just searching.  189 Dutch nationals perished.  Lord, have mercy.
