Mt. Everest

It just sounds weird. "Mount Everest is closed."

But that was the headline last week. No one's climbing that most iconic of all mountaineering conquests.

Because last week 16 Sherpa guides were lost on the mountain. As blocks of ice as big as automobiles came cascading down on them.

    It was awful. That Korean ferry rolling into the sea. Then disappearing beneath the waves. Filled with trapped passengers - many of them teenagers.

    It's heartbreaking to see all those loved ones on the dock, grieving inconsolably. Over their children who will never come home again.

      The Finish Line

      "We own the finish line!" - Vice President Joe Biden at the memorial service for Boston Marathon bombing victims

      Wow. I heard that and said, "That's Easter!"

      Death - life's finish line - has never been the same since Jesus blew it away that first Easter morning.

        It caught me off guard.

        I was watching an interview with a teenager who was an eyewitness in last week's school stabbing rampage. Actually, she was more than an eyewitness. She was almost a victim.

        Almost.

          I guess you'd expect it. After all, his parents' wedding was the most watched on the planet.

          And now Prince William and Princess Kate have an adorable son. Baby George. The most watched baby on the planet.

          Every time he's out in public, the press is all over it. Most recently, as he traveled to New Zealand with his royal parents.

            This time it was knives.

            A student rampaged through the halls of Franklin Regional High School, slashing with two long knives. Leaving a trail of blood and 22 wounded victims.

            So Murrysville, Pa. joins the list no one wants to be on. Like Newtown, Fort Hood - places where one angry person changes lives and families forever.
