I have been away for a few days - only just come back to reality.

I don't know if we have any Russian members or not... If we do, I can't imagine what you must feel.

I guess this is just a pause for thought... It all puts our own petty problems into perspective.

May they rest peacefully.
If hindsight were foresight, we'd all be millionaires!

We have no contributing Russian members that I'm aware of, but quite possibly some who read the forum.

The events unfolding over the last few days have been shocking indeed. The depths of evil to which some people in this world will sink seem beyond the comprehension of most normal decent people. Hanging would be far too good for anyone who could treat children in the way that these poor Russian kids were treated.

May the victims who did not survive rest in peace, and may those who survived find the strength and courage to continue with their lives. God bless them all, their families, and all the people who played a part in helping.

I agree with your comments totally.
This was so horrific, words can't really describe it.
I personally hope that nothing like this incident ever occurs again.
