A Dangerous Profession

Helicopter crashes always hit close to home for me. Many of my best friends are pilots, and as a Blackhawk driver myself, I know how quickly a seemingly routine mission can turn disastrous.

The recent CH-53 crash took the lives of many young Marines, who had already survived much combat. My thoughts and prayers are with their families, one of whom Anne knows personally.

Also, Bookworm has an excellent post on keeping perspective after such tragic events.
