Some Things To Talk About

Hello everyone

Good evening all !!!!!!! How is everyone today ? I hope you are all well. I would like to bring up a few things that I wanted to share from the news.

Anywho...Former President Bill Clinton brought home two U.S. journalists out of North Korea today following talks with leader Kim Jong Il. Mr. Clinton brought home Euna Lee and Laura Ling. I am happy to hear that they are back with their family, friends and loved ones.

In other news Atlanta Police have arrested a suspect in the shooting death of boxer Vernon Forrest. Damario Ware, 20 has been charged with murder, aggravated assault, and armed robbery. He turned himself into the Fulton County District Attorney's Office. Forrest lived in Atlanta and was a member of the 1992 Olympic team. He later won welterweight and junior middleweight titles. I would like to offer my condolences to Vernon's family and loved ones during this tragic time.

I also wanted to share that a gunman walked into a health club and started shooting. It happened in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night. He left five people dead including himself and injuring at least 10 others police and a hospital spokesman said. UPMC Mercy Hospital said that five critically injured injured women were taken there. Allegheny General Hospital said it had two women in fair condition with gunshot wounds. St. Clair Hospital said one of the victims of the shooting died there. Spokesman Rich Sieber said the woman was shot in the chest. He said two other victims were taken to the hospital. My heart goes out to those who were killed and injured.

That's all of the news for now. I shall be back tomorrow. Do take care everyone.

Oh Dear Monae, What a sad sad world we are living in when people do not seem to value life at all. There are so many gun crimes in the US.....I know we have our fair share here although it is more often young men and knives that cause such mayhem...I try to understand what is behind it all and I can hardly find any good reason..other thay mayeb they watch and play so many violent games these days that I wonder of perhaps they get fact and fiction mixed up. ANyway I send my love to all who are suffering at this time
Much Love Sybil x
