With the 10th year anniversary of Princess Diane death, it made me think of the past years. 10 years ago,the nations of the free world, and maybe beyond shed tears. It was on the television for many hours in many nations. The last time I knew of such a thing happening, was when John F. Kennedy was killed. About at 24 year span, I think. But again, nations cried and watched for hours. Both of these time of sorrow, still bring up sadness in a lot of us, to this day. It isn't just where were you when this happen, but the lost. Lost of innocents, lost of some one that people felt could make a difference in mankind. Yes, there were and are still people who didn't feel that way. But even most of them felt the sorrow -- Cis/From A Simple Mind here.

Question: I was in a hotel room in McMinnville, Ore., as part of a weekend in which I dropped my son off to begin his freshman year at Linfield College. He's now in his fifth of seven years in an MD/PhD program in Denver. Where were you when you heard the news about Diana?
