There is no greater pain than being forever
separated from those you love dearly. The pain is magnified when the loss is
due to senseless irresponsible actions causing an untimely death or a future
life filled with despair.
Throughout our lives we are made aware of
horrible tragedies that occur worldwide as we solemnly acknowledge how truly
sad and unfair life can be at times. Still, thoughts that any such things could
happen within our own family seem impossible so we go on our merry way. This is
the way that people cope with carrying on with their lives each day, placing
aside any fear that could easily become disabling.
However, we should not be so blind to that
which we should fear. Any industry that holds profit more sacred than
human lives, is one to be feared. The time is long passed due that the truth
surrounding the rails of this nation be brought before the people. With truth,
others might never suffer the anguish of loved ones perishing before their time
-- along the tracks.
