In The News: 32 Killed in Bus Accident in Mexico

MEXICO CITY: At least 32 people were killed in Mexico on Sunday after the bus they were traveling in turned over on a wet road in the Southwestern state of Guerrero, a red cross official said.

At least seven people were injured and believed to be in serious condition., the official said.

This isn't why I posted this article. Accidents like this occur everywhere, everyday. It is unfortunate to say the least. What prompted me to post this was of some responses this article recieved. It nearly broke my heart. I was compelled to ask the question, "Why are we so cruel?" because some of the responses were horrible.

One person responded: "No tears shed here. I think all Mexicans should be loaded up on buses and shipped back to Mexico." - My response to this is, first of all, this happened in Mexico, not America. secondly - REALLY? This is how we look upon our fellow man? This is horrible, just horrible. It saddens me greatly that we as human beings can be so harsh and heartless. These are people who were killed. Their life gone. Their loved ones having to move on without them. And all some evil person has to say is, "Ship them back to Mexico?" - It really is sad to know that there are people in the world like this. It is very disturbing. And the horrible comments didn't stop there. There were worse comments than that. I only posted the least offensive one.

Hey everyone, we are all stuck on this planet together. Wouldn't it be better if we all just got along and tried to help one another? Human to human, country to country? I think it would. And this coming from some one who could easily have a grudge against Mexicans because of my recent events, but I elect not to judge a race of people based on one person. There is good and bad in every culture. I just think we can do better as a human race and show a little sympathy when sympathy is required. Just my thoughts.

Love is always better than hate. Friendship is always better than hate. In fact, anything is better than hate. Hate only gets in the way of progress. It doesn't matter our heritage, skin color, sex, sexual preference, religion - what have you. We all bleed the color red. We all cry white tears. And when you get right down to it, we're all in this world together. Let's try and make the best of it, shall we? ... Peace to all.
