Sometimes it takes a disaster like this to mind us that life is short, and can change so quickly and without warning. For me, it’s particularly sobering, as I easily could have been on that train. I was riding the metro’s yellow line during the time of the collision, and was less than a mile or two away from ground zero.

Say a prayer for the victims and their families. They need all the support they can get.
