Four people died and 17 others were taken to a hospital when a train crashed into a parade float honoring veterans in Midland, Texas, late this afternoon.A horrific tragedy made all the more sickening by the fact that the parade float was carrying wounded veterans and their families - and some were unable to jump off to escape the crash because they were in wheelchairs. Dear Lord.
My thoughts are with everyone touched by this sad event. The families, the survivors, the bystanders and witnesses, and the train crew. Peace, healing, and love to you all.
