School bus crash leaves 5 girls dead

Post by john8pies »

How my heart goes out to the families, friends, relatives, schoolmates and teachers of the 5 poor children who were killed in a bus crash just outside Dublin. Several other pupils from St Michael`s school were badly injured, too. Such a traumatic and horrible event for those so young. RIP

Alas, those poor young girls died right in the middle of what should have been their "special years"

I've never heard that song before. Very touching. Locally, we just had 2 teenagers and one of their fathers killed in a plane crash. They were about to graduate and go to college. :( I hope I never experience what these parents are going through right now.
