Trampled To Death

Click on above link to go straight to the story.


This article truly made me sick to my stomach. I am so angry! How can people be & act out with such greed! OMG it's just friggin worldly material things-that some think they cannot do without OR that they'll be their childs, Aunt, Best friends etc..hero. And boast at how and what they had to do to get that most perfect gift! And for that a man lost his life? Is this what most of our society is made up of now. It's very discouraging.

I wonder how many of these people-will, have remorse over this mans death. Did they continue their greedy shopping sprees? The blood that was spilled (alagory there) for those insignificant trinkets that will be passed down to their friends and family members? (I'm speaking of the ones that helped trample the man to death).

And just as disturbing is the fact that people were "again" waiting to "get back into the same store" while they look on past the crime scene tape!

I feel so sad for the family members who lost a loved one today because of other peoples lust for greed. We really do live in a microwave world.

UP-DATE 11 PM

I forgot to mention that there were also four others that had minor injuries & were sent to the hospital to be checked out. One of the injured was a lady who was 8 months pregnant. They just announced that she lost the baby.

:( . My heart just breaks for those precious families, who are left to cry, mourn and ache with so much pain.



You Have Our Attention, LordA prayer by Max Lucado - October 2008

Our friends lost their house
The co-worker lost her job
The couple next door lost their retirement
It seems that everyone is losing their footing

This scares us. This bailout with billions.
These rumblings of depression.
These headlines: ominous, thunderous -
“Going Broke!” “Going Down!” “Going Under!” “What's Next?”

What is next?

We’re listening. And we’re admitting: You were right.
You told us this would happen.
You shot straight about loving stuff and worshipping money.
Greed will break your heart, You warned.
Money will love you and leave you.
Don’t put your hope in riches that are so uncertain.

You were right. Money is a fickle lover and we just got dumped.
We were wrong to spend what we didn’t have.
Wrong to neglect prayer and ignore the poor.
Wrong to think we ever earned a dime. We didn’t. You gave it.
And now, tell us Father, are You taking it?
We’re listening. And we’re praying.
Could you make something good out of this mess?

Of course You can. You always have.
You led slaves out of slavery,
Built temples out of ruins,
Turned stormy waves into a glassy pond and water into sweet wine.
This disorder awaits your order. So do we.

Through Christ, Amen

God will always give what is right to His people who cry to Him night and day, and He will not be slow to answer them. (Luke 18:7 NCV)

I agree this is so sick and wrong. Amazing how humans can act like animals in the right circumstances.

I read that in our newspapers over here and I was disgusted and appalled that people could act like that. The poor family, not only losing a loved one but losing them like that - so pointless, so sad.

it is very sad and disgusting...i certainly hope there is remorse, but you do have to wonder about folks who still wait in line wanting the store to reopen after such an event. i didn't know about the woman's baby...makes me want to cry.

It is beyond words that people are being killed while shopping.

I hope after what has happend this year with the shootings and deaths, black friday sales come to a stop. No sale price or item is worth a life.
