146 dead victims among the 175 passengers of the flight Spanair JK 5022 fron Madrid-Barajas to Las Palmas-Gando! An MD-82. One more time!
May they rest in peace.
But today I’m the most fortunate man in the world: my wife and my three children were not on that flight. The same airline, the same destiny, but four hours later. As the hours pass I’m feeling more and more sick. I could see my children on TV standing behind the TV reporters. Oh, Lord! They will fly tomorrow. I can’t hardly wait to meet them tomorrow. But I’m the most fortunate man in the world, thank you Lord.
I’m listening to the news: the crashed airplane passes its last checking on January 24, MY BIRTHDAY! I have gotten the most valuable present of my life.
May they rest in peace. God bless the victims and their families.
