There was a metro train collision (seen above in the AP image) a little after 5 p.m. this afternoon. I took the VRE back to Stafford at 5:25 p.m. It was actually a nice day today and so I walked from the Capitol to L'Fant train station. Although the collision was on the Red Line, it just makes you think. I, like those people on that train, was just getting off from work and making my commute home. You really have to count your blessings and be thankful for each day. At any rate, the press reports there have been four confirmed deaths and many others injured. My thoughts and prayers go out to the people who lost someone today.
