The Ones Who Matter

While I always have pretty much the same reactions to horrible events like those that capped the news yesterday (shock, anger at the situations that preceded them, a sick fascination with the unfolding story, and especially, sympathy for those in the middle of it), it is this information that saddens me the most.

Before joining in the storm of 20/20 hindsight, as well as thoughtful future preventative measures (if I get around to it...), I figure we should all take a deep breath, pause, and remember the ones who matter the most in this story, and the families and friends who have lost them.
