Get off her back LG, and snb92874 - specially you racist LG. OK, there was a tradegy, caused by the man that chose to walk on to the train tracks and maybe Pretty Asian could have worded it a more delicately. But,Paul chose to walk on to the tracks. His choice. Respect that. How easly we turn on each other because of differences. Asian, black, white, latino --- thought it made no difference in the Bay Area --- To Paul's wife ... I'm sorry this happened. You are strong --- you will survive --- not your doing --- Karma? No, peace --- love and peace on to all of you.

whoa! lots of HATE mails on my inbox. too bad, i was prejudged already. my purpose was to REMIND EVERYONE to take extra caution whenever crossing a rail road cuz there are even those who take it for granted that causes accidents leading to death.... as the sign says, STOP, LOOK, and LISTEN. Did I use a pronoun that referred to Paul? please reread my comment above and let me know if i condemned or blamed him. thanks for the caring.
Pretty Asian... May 27, 2012 at 10:29 PM
thank you for getting my point across because i mean well. My condolences to the family.

in most cases, the only factor that people see is "what we did (what we wrote)" wherein fact they should be looking at the reason 'why we did it (why we wrote it)." This is not a perfect world; not a perfect life either, So just go on living on a day-to-day basis cuz people will never run out of something to say against us. whatever bad comments people say against us is generally the subconscious manifestations of themselves due to self-denial or envy. Instead, simply smile and say "thanks for the caring" cuz they only see themselves in that instance.

Stop all this crap! Paul was a great guy who made a bad choice. He was just trying to get home on foot. This is the reason why "opinions" should be kept to one's self. I'm sure if he had to do it all over again, he would have chose to wait it out. There's an old saying, "Get all the facts, then pop off! Let the family grieve ok. Good advice!
