Default Three teens killed by train in Florida.

Gruesome.

Tragic, but I can't say I feel too sorry for them. Unlike most teen tragedies, this could've been prevented, but nope. What a shame.

I believe that today more than ever a book should be sought after even if it has only one great page in it. We must search for fragments, splinters, toenails, anything that has ore in it, anything that is capable of resuscitating the body and the soul.

They walked past a "No Tresspassing" sign and ignored other warnings. The girls froze out of fear when the train approached. Unfortunately it has been hard on the families.

I hear that train everyday.

Very sad, and I also wonder why they didn't just jump into the water. Almost makes me wish I was there, screaming the loudest to them to do just that and that they might have heard and been saved.

The train scene in Stand By Me instantly ran through my head when I read this. Unfortunately, the movie had a much better outcome.

i had an old gradeschool friend who headbutted a train after we graduated. word is he got trashed at a party and some hoodlums took him and dumped him on the track. ruled a suicide, but those close to him say it was murder.

as young teens we used to walk across this trestle to go get stoned (it was definitely less scary on the return trip). there was no water to jump into and of course, there were no active trains using this ancient track.


kids here nowadays are robbed of that type of "fun"-

You know how kids are they think they are superman and nothing will happen to them. Signs are put there for a reason.
