Some of you may have heard of a terrible disaster in a small town south of Quebec City..

A train loaded with crude oil .. Parked at the top of a hill .. With no one on board .. Somehow the brakes let go and the train came down the hill and derailed in a small town killing apox. 40 people..huge explosions and fire

We had a letter read tonight at our meeting regarding the disaster....

You will be happy to hear that there were no deaths, injuries, or loss of property among the 64 publishers in the Lac-Mégantic Congregation. However, many families were evacuated for safety reasons and were accommodated with other Witness families in the area. They are now back into their homes. When the explosions occurred at 1:30 a.m., the elders right away went to ascertain the well-being of the families in the vicinity. By 8:00 a.m., all publishers were accounted for.

Such news is bitter-sweet. While we of course are delighted that our brothers and sisters are safe, the loss of any human life seems to get me emotional anymore as I get older. I am more empathetic and sympathetic to the world around me than I was in my youth.
