BBC News – ‘100 missing’ as DR Congo boat capsizes

BBC News – ‘100 missing’ as DR Congo boat capsizes.

When I was a boy we didn’t wake up with Vietnam and have Cyprus for lunch and the Congo for dinner. – Lyndon B. Johnson

“Going up that river was like traveling back to the earliest beginnings of the world, when vegetation rioted on the earth and the big trees were kings.” – Joseph Conrad (The Heart of Darkness)

On this day, that has had so many world shaking events unfold, I feel it is important to take just a second to stop and realize that there are still people throughout the world that are hurting. They are just trying to survive in this hard world, even commuting can be a dangerous event. So while we all live our lives, and cuss at the car that just cut us off, I really think we should be thankful for what we have. Oh, and take a moment in thought for the victims of this simple tragedy.

As you were.
