This is absoulutely horrible !! It is true that we never know when it is going to be our time but it doesn't make it any easier when something like this happens and we realize all that could be lost in a matter of seconds especially when it is supposed to be a day of fun . My heart breaks for all these familes that must be going through hell on a day that was supposed to bring all their children joy and not sadness and pain .

I know what you mean. My husband is in Africa and is about to take a flight to Tanzania via Air Kenya and only two days ago, a plane Air Kenya crashed and there were no survivors. He was talking to me today about what to do if anything happens and I didn't want to listen to it. It scared the hell out of me and I'm praying that nothing happens to him tommorrow!
