Olympic Tragedy

Sadly, an Olympic athlete has met an untimely end shortly before the opening ceremony. Nodar Kumaritashvili, a Georgian Luger, crashed into a metal pole during a practice run and passed away. So sad to see someone so young (21) lose his life so senselessly. I guess this shows the impermanence of life. You just never know. At least Mr. Kumaritashvili was doing what he loved best.

Ugh, that is horrible news. I feel bad for his family, his team and his country for their loss.

I saw the video of the accident and I was really shaken, which doesn't happen that often. Really sad and I can't but think preventable.
