Editors Note: A World of Unrest: The Ball Keeps Rolling

A World of Unrest: The Ball Keeps Rolling

One thing does lead to another. This may sound trite, but whenever there is a reporting of one disaster or potential disaster, it seems as if others are encouraged to vent their own grievances at their society or at society as a whole.

The ongoing inflammatory posturing of North Korea, and even China’s assertions that the United States is stirring up trouble in the Asian region are bad enough without the addition of a violent bomb attack at something as monumental, traditional, and family oriented as the Boston Marathon. The objective in both scenarios is to shock and disorient others in an attempt to gain a personal goal. In the case of North Korea there seems to be an attempt to cause fear and gain rewards for outrageous behavior. The Boston Marathon bomber(s) appear to seek notoriety and the ill satisfaction of killing and wounding others. There is never a reason to take either stance.

Throughout history there have been innumerable examples of posturing, aggression, and terrorism; so this is nothing new under the sun. However, the tragedy is in the sadness that these unnecessary acts of aggression should exist at all, and especially that they should harm and target innocent people. Over the span of the last 100 years, among the outstanding wars and conflicts have been WW I, WW II, The Korean War, The Vietnamese War, and the Mid-East Conflicts. Some of these have never been fully resolved. This leaves a climate of potential trouble that can occur on any day or any hour, and certainly on any continent.

The world is facing an ever-growing disregard for people, societies, and moral values. Life is considered highly expendable, even to the extent of euthanasia which extols allowing the sick to die to benefit society. On the local level there is more disrespect for each other while shopping, traveling, or attending recreational events. On a national and international level this same dynamic is present. Patience as a virtue is not winning the day.

I pray that the Boston Marathon bombing is not a prelude to even more detestable actions on the part of individuals, groups, or world powers. Life is hard enough without having to imagine yourself under an attack from someone you have not only never met, but have never held in contempt or derision.

Please pray for the Richard Family, who suffered the loss of their son, Martin, and also suffered personal injuries. I’m sure that their presence was to support and cheer on a hard-working athlete and father who deserved respect, as did everyone attending or participating in this race. No one at the event deserved pain and injuries.

Please also pray that the investigation of this crime will yield information that will lead authorities to the perpetrators. This tragedy has been compared to 9-11 and the Oklahoma Bombing. It was certainly meant to disrupt a momentous occasion in our nation’s history.

[TRANS] 121217 Park Yoochun Hints At The Ending For ‘I Miss You’ “I Think A Happy Ending Would Be Difficult”

“I think a happy ending would be difficult.”

Actor Park Yoochun was cautious about discussing his drama’s ending. He has come to the conclusion that it would be difficult to end on a happy note.

‘I Miss You’ is garnering much attention for hinting at a tragic fate for the three main characters since the early stages of the drama. Some are pointing at the scenes that show Jung Woo and Soo Yeon hugging each other and crying, as well as the scene where Jung Woo gets shot and falls, as signs that lead to a tragic end.

At the ‘I Miss You’ press conference on the 17th, Park Yoochun stated, “Regardless of how the plot goes, I think a happy ending would be difficult. I talked about it with the director recently, and I think that no matter what the details of the storyline are, it will end on a sad note.”

Meanwhile, ‘I Miss You’ is a melodrama that depicts the love of two people who keep the memories of their first love in their hearts. Park Yoochun plays the role of the detective Han Jung Woo, who lives in despair and sorrow at being unable to protect his first love.

The drama representative continued saying, “In fact, to be focusing on only one person for a long period of time, is not something that only occur with the drama’s setting. It should also be the steady acting of Park Yoochun who is able to capture the tragic yearning for the past 14 years and portraying the multi-layered emotions, resulting in the audience falling deeper for the drama’s storyline.”

Audience commented through the forum that, “Compared to fairytale-sweetness story, this is sadder and more touching.”, “Han Jung Woo’s tragic story made one’s heart stuffed. I can only wait for the broadcast day of Missing You”, “Due to Park Yoochun’s outstanding emotional acting, my nose will be cleared and had a good sleep on the night after watching ‘Missing You’.” etc.

MBC ‘Missing You’ will be broadcasting tomorrow on the 28th at 9.55pm KST.

120616 [Four] 4 Missing Climbers Presumed Dead After Avalanche

Tragedy seems to be everywhere. Please pray for the families of those assumed deceased.

4 Missing Climbers Presumed Dead After Avalanche

Associated PressBy NIGEL DUARA | Associated Press – 23 mins ago
One member of a Japanese climbing team survived and four others are presumed dead after an avalanche swept them off a hill during their descent from Mount McKinley.

U.S. National Park Service officials say five people were traveling as one rope team early Thursday morning as part of a Miyagi Workers Alpine Federation expedition on the Alaska mountain.

Park Service spokeswoman Maureen McLaughlin said Hitoshi Ogi, 69, survived after falling 60 feet into a crevasse. He was able to climb out.

The other four tumbled into the avalanche debris and haven’t been seen since. The climbers are presumed dead by either snow burial or injuries suffered in falls

Snowfall and wind have impeded a search for the missing climbers.

Hitoshi spoke to Park Service employees after the event. He said the climbers were descending the mountain together when the avalanche began, McLaughlin said. They sped up, trying to get down the mountain faster, but the rope connecting them broke when the avalanche struck.

Hitoshi was the lowest person on the rope team. He looked for the other four but couldn’t find them.

“He wasn’t sure of all the events,” McLaughlin said, adding that Hitoshi spoke through a translator and was exhausted.

The four missing climbers include 64-year-old Yoshiaki Kato, 50-year-old Masako Suda, 56-year-old Michiko Suzuki, and 63-year-old Tamao Suzuki.

There was new snow on the route, but the weather on Thursday was calm, McLaughlin said.

“Where the avalanche occurred, the vast majority (of the new snow) was not on the main route,” McLaughlin said. “A small sliver of it was, and that’s what took them.”

McLaughlin called the avalanche, “an unlucky, random event.”

“Avalanches do occur in this vicinity, but it’s not common, she said.

The climbers were attempting the busiest route, West Buttress, during the height of mountaineering season. Climbers attempted the route on 92 percent of attempts on Mount McKinley in 2011.

The Park Service said in a news release that nearly 400 people were on the Alaska mountain on Saturday.

Mount McKinley, also known as Denali, is America’s tallest peak. While not a particularly tall peak by global standards, its latitude makes for far thinner air than is found in mountains closer to the equator. That, combined with the weather and temperatures, makes it a particularly dangerous climb.

Four people died on the mountain in 2009 and again in 2010. At least five people died in 2011 on Mount McKinley.

Pastors Split On When To Go Home; One Lives, One dies

Pastors Split On When To Go Home: One Lives, One Dies

Death is no respecter of persons. Ten people lost their lives in a pile-up near Gainesville, Florida during foggy conditions. Investigators are concerned that the decision to open up the highway was made too quickly.

Our prayers are with the Carmo Family and other victims of this tragedy.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Senior Pastor Arao Amazonas said he wanted to wait until the next morning to leave Florida after a religious conference. But Pastor Jose Carmo Jr. wanted to be back in time for the suburban Atlanta church’s Sunday morning service and led two vans up Interstate 75 toward Georgia.

A few hours later, Amazonas received a call: Both vans had crashed in the highway’s fog- and smoke-shrouded darkness near Gainesville. Carmo, his wife and their daughter were among five church members killed in two deadly pileups along the always busy six-lane interstate.

“We couldn’t have imagined such tragedy would come to us,” said Amazonas, senior pastor at the Igreja Internacional de Restaurcao, or International Church of the Restoration.

In all, a total of 10 people were killed in the string of collisions. The Florida Highway Patrol on Tuesday identified a seventh victim — 27-year-old Christie Diana Nguyen, of Gainesville, Fla. She was a passenger in a vehicle traveling northbound. Investigators were still trying to identify three bodies that were badly burned. Troopers have been contacted by people from around the country wondering if the identified bodies might be a relative.

“There are people who have traveled to Florida and we’re getting calls and emails from people who say, ‘Hey, I haven’t heard from my son-in-law for the last couple of days, he isn’t answering his texts,’ something to that degree,” said Lt. Patrick Riordan, an Florida Highway Patrol spokesman.

The accident happened after the Florida Highway Patrol had reopened the interstate following an earlier serious wreck. A sergeant and lieutenant determined after about three hours that conditions had cleared enough for drivers, but visibility quickly became murky again, officials said Monday. Florida Gov. Rick Scott has ordered an investigation into that decision.

“We went through the area. We made an assessment. We came to the conclusion that the road was safe to travel and that is when we opened the road up,” Riordan said Monday in a news conference. “Drivers have to recognize that the environment changes. They have to be prepared to make good judgments.”

At least a dozen cars, six tractor-trailers and a motorhome collided about 3:45 a.m. Sunday. Some cars were crushed under the bellies of big rigs. Others burst into flames and sent metal shrapnel flying through the air, horrifying witnesses watching the violence along Interstate 75. Eighteen survivors were hospitalized.

In a 911 recording released Monday, a driver and her passengers told a dispatcher the fog and smoke from the 62-acre brush fire was so thick they couldn’t see.

“I think there was another accident behind us because I heard it,” a woman said. “Oh my gosh, it’s so dark here.”

In the same 911 call, another woman took the phone and screamed an expletive as she hears another crash.

“That was a truck. We cannot see. It’s like impossible to see,” the caller said. “The smoke is very thick you can see obviously only your hand in front. I do hear an ambulance or police officer coming down the road.”

Late Monday, the highway patrol named six of those who died in wrecks on the northbound side of the highway that involved 10 vehicles. Another multiple-vehicle pileup happened on the southbound side. A fire consumed at least four vehicles in the southbound lane, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report released Tuesday.

Jason Lee Raikes, 26, of Richmond, Va., died in the crash, authorities said. They also said five out of six people riding in a 2012 Dodge Caravan died in the crash: Driver Edson Carmo, 38; Roselia DeSilva, 41; Jose Carmo Jr., 43; Adrianna Carmo, 39; and Leticia Carmo, 17; all of Kennesaw, Ga. The highway patrol did not immediately provide the identity of a seventh crash fatality.

Jose and Adriana Carmo were married and Leticia was their daughter, said Amazonas, the senior pastor at their church.

The van’s sixth occupant, the couple’s younger daughter, Lidiane, 15, survived the crash, Amazonas said. A hospital spokeswoman said Tuesday morning she was listed in critical condition.

The Carmos were in one van and other church members were in a second van. The passengers of that van called Amazonas after the accident to tell him what happened, he said.

About 100 people gathered Monday evening at the suburban Atlanta church, which caters to the local Brazilian community, to mourn the deaths of their fellow church members. People at the gathering wailed and wept as Amazonas addressed them in Portuguese.

Riordan declined to release the names of the two troopers who made the decision to reopen the highway or provide details on how long they had been with the patrol. He said no troopers have been disciplined but the investigation into the crash continues. National Transportation Safety Board officials said Monday they are sending investigators to the scene.

The Florida Forest Service said Monday it still had not determined if the brush fire was intentionally set or accidental, although lightning has been ruled out. Spokeswoman Ludie Bond said the fire is contained but was still burning. Firefighters are spraying water around its perimeter attempting to reduce the smoke.

Criminal defense attorneys said that if the fire was caused by arson, authorities likely will file charges of manslaughter and possibly felony murder, which is defined as a death that happens as result of participating in a felony.

“You can bet they will be,” said Brian Tannebaum, a former president of the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

Sugarland in Indianapolis


There is so much tragedy occurring in the world today. Probably no more than has occurred at any other time–it is just that the Internet has opened up the whole world’s affairs to the masses. This recent tragedy that killed five people and left many others critically injured is of importance because all stage productions, if not prepared properly, have the potential for disaster.

I think back to the weather circumstances last year that blew the cover off of JYJ’s venue. They had gone to so much trouble to place protection there for the fans and everyone was devastated by the turn of events, but the weather is one thing that we have no control over. Using discernment and wisdom is a tool that can be used to avoid disaster as the Tour Manager proved in the situation with Sugarland. They were praying and their prays were answered. That could have been a terrible tragedy and without any disrespect to those who lost loved ones, because our prayers go out to them, it could have been much worse.

Let us please continue to pray for the safety of not just JYJ or HoMin, but for all people who have to be on stages or performing in the open where they are subject to unpredictable weather.
