Earthquake in New Zealand - prayers for everyone there. Terrible, terrible devastation and death toll.
Plus 4 Americans killed by pirates whilst they were travelling in their yacht handing out bibles to people around the world it seems. One has to wonder why people would even go into these areas knowing the dangers of these crazy pirates who have some 600 or more people held hostage from ships they have taken over. I don't understand that one at all. Why aren't the ships firing upon these few guys who turn up in tiny boats and take over huge tankers etc.
Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi ordering pilots to fire weapons on rioters. Can you imagine that .. being ordered to kill your countrymen ... instead they defected to another country, landing their planes in Syria I think ...... good heavens what a bad news day it is already ..... :-(
