"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
There was yet another Show based tragedy that occurred yesterday at the Reno Air Show.
74-Year old Veteran Hollywood Stunt Pilot Jimmy Leeward crashed the P-51 Mustang World War II Era Fighter Plane into the ground, just a few hundred feet short of the entire bleacher stands. It is said that the crash was likely caused by mechanical failure.
The accident has left 3 dead, including Leeward himself, and 50 injured, many of whom were left maimed and dismembered.
This horrific accident is eerily similar to, and comes at only a month since the Sugarland accident at the Indiana State Fair, which left 5 people dead and 40 injured.
My thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to all those who were harmed or lost their lives or loved ones in these two horrific accidents, that simply originated from times meant for show and celebration.
In my opinion, these accidents are no accidents at all. In the least, they are wake up calls to each and all of us to remember how precious and fragile the thread of life truly is.
In the deepest, these events could be reminders of the state of our lost world, as we are seeing tragedies, mishaps and disasters on a global scale. It could also be a crucial message, reminding us of how the power of life, and the loss of it, is greater than our human capabilities to contain, as both accidents are tragedies that feel larger than life itself.
Let us not take our lives for granted, and let us be more concerned and cautious of the fragile world we are living in. Please remember, we each have the ability to impact our world for the better, on a daily basis.
And in times like these that we are living in today, we need as much help as we can get.
