Condolences to the People of Poland

unimaginable  loss
 Poland's President  Lech Kaczynski, his wife Maria and 95 others were killed in a plane crash  in Russia last Saturday. This is a terrible loss and my heart goes out to the Polish people.

from the UK Times:
 Lech Kaczynski, the late President of Poland, returned home yesterday to a country struck dumb with grief and confusion. The air crash that wiped out the head of state, the chief of the general staff, the chairman of the security services, the central bank governor and Solidarity heroes has left Poland reeling, unsteady and uncertain.
...The crash occurred on Saturday morning at Smolensk in western Russia. The President had taken with him the cream of Polish society to pay tribute at the 70th anniversary of the Katyn massacres: 22,000 officers and intellectuals, slaughtered in 1940, by Soviet NKVD troops.

As much as I relish sniping about how corrupt and useless most of our politicians are--I can't imagine this thing happening here. Losing a President in such a tragic way is unthinkable for me. It doesn't matter if I disagree with what she's doing... I do pray for President Macapagal-Arroyo's safety and hope for the best for her family.

So sad for Poland. Now some are saying Russia might have been involved, hope it's not true.

tho I wasn't alive yet at that time, I felt like whatever the Polish people are going through right now, we filipinos had been down that road before when Pres. Ramon Magsaysay, one of the most loved President in the Philippines died in a plane crash.

@Missy I hope that's not true.

@myfingerstyping Yeah, this hasn't happened in our lifetime but I've heard about Pres. Magsaysay from my mom.
