    This is one of the Seven Signs of the Apocalypse.

    this is JUST what i needed to hear. my granddaughter is down there with her father and other grandmom this week! i definitely don't want to say anything to my daughter because i don't want to worry her and i don't have their phone number. at least i can figure that IF something happened he would have called her by now.
    we need to encourage harder sentencing on those that are harming our children. our children are worth it!!

    stop the circus!! these children as all children deserve to be found and justice brought forth for what has happened to them!!

    Well, from what I gather, haven't all the 7 signs been fullfilled???

    I'm sorry, Brownigirl, I was just kidding. As DollyPM points out, some think the Seven Signs were fulfilled before now.

    My personal belief is that every era simply reinterprets Revelations to suit that era's hopes and fears. Although some have accused Walt Disney of being the antichrist, I don't think they meant it literally.

    Oh I took that literally, as I don't know anything about the 7 signs.

    Update

    http://www.wesh.com/news/20018628/detail.html

    This is an update on how the crash happened. It appears that the employees who should have been monitoring the monorail were actually off grounds at a Denny's!
    There is also a picture of the young man who was killed, so very sad. I have ridden the monorail often and it just never occured to me something like this could happen.

    Just because you want to be with somebody does not mean they will take care of your children.
