    MY FRIEND WAS SAYING IN D.C. HOW HE WAS ABOUT TO GET ON THAT PLANE TO GO TO WORK AND HOW HE CALLED IN AT THE LAST MINUTE TO STAY HOME BECAUSE HE DIDN’T FEEL SO WELL.

    MAN, GOD IS SO GOOD! SOMETIMES WE DON’T KNOW WHY HE ALLOWS THINGS TO HAPPEN BUT IT’S ALL FOR A REASON. WHAT A TESTIMONY!

    MAY THE FAMILIES WHO LOST LOVED ONES BE COMFORTED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD.

    Everytime I visit family in Rockville,MD and we go out, I always complain about the METRO. It’s me being afraid to go underground. It stopped on us one time and another time someone had jumped in front of a train???

    I am still waiting to hear how my sister is doing. One on the train and the other in Bagram, Afghanistan.

    I’m trying not to be in tears or scream at anyone.

    @Babygirl,
    Actually, they have confirmed 9 are dead. This body count may rise as they are still having trouble getting into the smashed part of the train. I hope and pray no one else is dead, but that is not likely to be the case.

    The Red line is the first subway line built in the DC metro system. It is plagued with problems due to the sheer age of that line. Some locals call it the “Bloody Red Line” because of all of the traffic, technical issues and suicides on that line, but this incident has shocked everyine here. Mayor Fenty had a press conference this AM. Needless to say, the morning commute was messed up. My prayers go out to the families.

  • MAYBE I'M YOUR BABY MAMA !!!

    The bodie count is rising.
    I live in DC and yesterday there was total confusion from people not getting on the subway.

    I pray for those hurt or killed.

  • MAYBE I'M YOUR BABY MAMA !!!

    @ MrsT_n_DC

    I cannot understand why so many chose the redline to kill themselves !!??
    It was just two last weekend, both at Bethesda.

  • ME

    I was just about to start to use the metro again, however, I use the blue and green line instead of the red, but still…..its sad and I pray that God is with these people and that he helps them through this terible time.

  • kimllaa

  • Adrienne
