Families of the deceased and the wounded:
May the pain you are feeling soon be conquered by the peace of God that surpasses all thought.
The tradgedy of this day haunts even a man like me who knows not a thing about the victims except that they must be special to someone and that someone is in real emotional pain.
Bless you all!

Really? Is your life so shallow, so devoid of purpose you're going to get down on your knees and pray for some early nineties pop band rocker you've never met who doesn't give a sh*t about you? I assume you're also praying for the thousands of children who die of starvation every day, for the millions of Americans who've lost their homes and their jobs from natural disasters and the economic freefall, for the shackled Chinese dissidents, for 12 year old military conscripts in the Congo, for beaten wives, molested children, disabled veterans begging for change on the street, for babies born addicted to crack, and all the millions of victims of cancer. Then after all that and all the countless other more worthwhile causes, I suppose you finally get around to saying a prayer for some smug shallow millionaire one-hit-wonder who got injured in a private jet crash. Right?

You're all heart. That smug shallow millionaire, as you call him, is a human being. Can't say you're a very nice human being. You're more of a POS.

People only pray for those they care about. People don't care about all of the above mentioned because they have not been affected by them in any way.

The same goes for those who died in the same plane crash. Sure everyone will come on here and write rip to the four that died, but the reality is that they only care about the two that made it off the plane. the rest are a bunch of "no names" to them.

Praying for them does not exclude a prayer for the cancer ridden and starving. Just say your prayer for the band and end it with 'and bless everyone else' and I think that would cover it. Doesn't take a whole lot more knee time does it?
And if you really want to save time just say 'bless everyone'-- you can do that while you are brushing your teeth and not have a second of time interference with your day.
And as a ps I've generally found that sparks coming off your plane as you spin it up for takeoff is generally not a good sign
