My Boss was on this train

I am very happy to read that he was okay, and as is his wont helped the injured off the wreckage. That's the kind of guy he is. I'll save the ribbing that this is what he gets for catching a 3:30 train home on a Friday for sometime 300 years from now when it might be funny.

Really, this kind of s^it can happen at any time randomly. Kiss your wife, hug your kids, have a slice of cheesecake, drive a convertible in the moonlight. It could all be over tomorrow, or you could have to do triage when you're there but it ain't over for you. Life's short. Smell a flower. You never know.

Oh sh**, that is the first photo I have seen of the train. What a terrible thing, but I am so very glad that your boss is safe and was able to help others too. You never do know, do you?
