Pan Am 103 Bomber Heading Home

Wonder what the families of the victims of Pan Am Flight 103 are feeling? One of the bombers is heading back to Libya! Yep, he's been shown compassion because he is suffering from terminal prostate cancer! Hope the private jet he is going home on is going to be flown by remote control and that he's aboard alone and the damn thing blows us when it crosses the ocean! I just heard the private jet is being provided by Momar Khadafi. Yeah, you heard that correctly. Terrorists around the world must be celebrating. When we do not remember the past, we are doomed to repeat it! VN8

The following is a poem by a mother who lost her only son aboard Pan Am Flight 103:

A Mothers Thoughts by Beulah McKee

How many times can a Mothers heart be broken?
How many tears can a Mother shed?
How much love as yet unspoken
Can never be said?

It was four days until Christms
Everywhere carols could be heard
The day a "terrorist bomb"
Brought down the "mechanical bird".

Two hundred fifty-nine bodies rained down
There were eleven more dead on the ground
And parts of the plane "Pan Am 103"
All scattered over the town of Lockerbie.

Devastation and havoc was everywhere
Folks in the town looked around with despair
Asking the inevitable "why"
Was it really time for so many people to die?

They did not understand
It was to have occurred over the ocean, not over the land
Leaving evidence hard to find
For those with only that on their mind.

To find those that were guilty
We knew would take time
Now two men in Libya
Have been charged with the crime.

It's been over eight years
Justice has yet to be done
Of the many who are waiting
I'm only one.

So I grow ever older
Will an ending come late?
I can't help but wonder
As I just sit and wait, and wait.

With my heart that's been broken
With the tears I still shed
With the love still unspoken
For my only son, who is dead.

Amen, VN8 and CS. I said it on another post as well: This guy should have stopped smoking many years ago -- when they turned the juice off!!

I guess an eye for an eye only applies to moslems and those poor palestinians. Pitiful.
