63

Just a few days ago - 9 January 2020, a Ukrainian Jetliner destined for Canada took off from Tehran, Iran.... with 63 Canadian Citizens on board out of a total passenger count of 176....it appears that the Jet was likely struck by a missile. The strike and resultant crash killed everyone on board including many Children and Families

This tragedy took place during the time that Iranian Missiles were being launched towards mostly US military targets in Iraq (which was the location of American and ally encampments).......all occurred during this current period of hostilities that we are experiencing.

SOLELY because of this terrible tragedy AND THE INCIDENTS THAT LED UP TO IT, families are torn with tragedy and sadness and Loss!
Little kids will be robbed of the chance to grow up....Families will be gone! ...

As for me, I cherish my Canadian roots and family - although I am a born US citizen, I have always been so close and in love with ALL of my Canadain relatives and friends.

This terrible and unnecessary tragedy has broken my heart....it seems that our lives and future are in the hands of insane, self-centered and selfish "people"..........People.....If you want to call them that!

My sincerest Prayers, thoughts and sympathy for all!
