Devastating Loss
« on: July 15, 2005, 03:15:00 AM »
Today in Colorado, a man and his friend were fixing their car when the friend asked the man to move his car, the man did not know that his 15 month old daughter was hiding under the front wheel, he ran over her and killed her.

I nearly cried when I heard this, I tried to find a link to the story but did not succeed... sorry.

What a tragedy! Prayers for everyone---the child, the witnesses, and for the parents.

OMG... that poor man and his family.  Prayers.
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Lord, have mercy.
Please don't project meta-debates onto me.
