I am sure many of you must have heard about the metro link train crash.Chatsworth is the next city to where I live.It was very sad and disturbing to hear about the many lives that were lost and the people that were injured.Many of the passengers were from Simi valley, where I live.it would have been the next stop if the train had not collided.My heartfelt sympathy goes out to all the families that have lost loved ones and my prayers to all the injured.Life is really so fragile,we never know from one day to another if we will be alive and also when we set out each day we never know if we will return.I feel we have to live each day the best way we can because we do not know what tomorrow brings.

Incredibly tragic and what you say is exactly right.

Jeevan 9:27 AM  

Very true, we must live the moment to fullest, where tomorrow we doesn’t know. My prayer for injuries to get cure and lose of pain.

***I feel we have to live each day the best way we can because we do not know what tomorrow brings.

Thanks for that statement.:)

You are correct in what you say. One never knows about what life will bring your way. Some of us may know what lies ahead but I always wonder. Is it a test of faith knowing and still going on while this heavy burden lies across our heart.
I went to your Indian Bloggers. I am not Indian but love all books and memoirs about India. Lotus Reads and I are old friends from Book Crossing.com days.
Wish I could join.
love your site!

Hi SN!

I had been with this thought in mind for a while now...
Since the recent bomb blasts in India....the last one happened in Delhi, my city...

Life is so fragile...
even as we write we know some bomb is in the making, some disaster is looming...

had been away for a while. updated the first two blogs at profile. do come...

Keshi 10:58 PM  

Hope all is well with ya Starry.


Diana 11:33 AM  

Hi Starry....

Life has become such that once u step out, u arent sure if u u gonna return back home safe...

A Sad incident.

Pacifier Returns 12:37 PM  

But sometimes even after knowing this simple fact of life that any day could be our last day, we end up hurting people, not smiling..etc etc....

divya 8:10 PM  

just read ur post about the nicu..i work in the nicu and i understand wht u said..just my emotion..hw hard it is to tell a parent this baby is not well...

Krithika 3:15 AM  

it's terrible wat happened there..life is fragile indeed

Ajnabi 12:47 PM  

Its always shocking when such incident happens all of sudden. Thats why Isaac Asimov mentioned..."Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome."

It does suggest that Live in the Present and dont plan much for future. :(

my life.... 2:49 AM  

hey Lali,how are u ? Its very sad to see such tragedies:(

Dawn....सेहर 10:43 PM  

Its very sad Starry....this post is very sad! I have no words...today I read 3-4 posts and I am reading similar posts...I feel sad very sad deep inside.
Hope things get better and God gives strength to bear the loss
