Poland needs our prayers this morning, and for the foreseeable future.

prayers for the people of poland whose president perished in the plane crash. peter piper picked a peck of pickles.

Quote:
Kaczynski had been traveling with the Polish delegation to Russia for the 70th anniversary of the massacre of Polish prisoners of war in the village of Katyn. Some 20,000 Polish officers were executed there during World War II.

....

"The entire top military brass, including the chief of defense and all the services, were on the plane," said Tomas Valasek, of the Center for European Reform.

"If that is true, then you're looking at a situation, in effect, of the decapitation of the military services."
