Memories from Sri Lanka

I came to meet Mark on CNN iReport so many years ago.

Mark used to write mostly on political stuff. He was very good at it.

Something that I have been always grateful for is his help in helping me out when I wanted him to edit any memorial or article that I wanted to write. I would send him the papers.

Mark would always oblige, anytime I asked him, except during one last time when he was too ill to do so.

Thank you, Mark, for all your help in editing my work whenever I wanted it.

It has been a great pleasure to know you through the iReport family.

May the Holy Triple Gem be with you always.

Calamity Half Century Ago

Imagine you are an 8-year-old boy in a small Kansas town in 1967. You are roused from bed, your body trembling from the sound and the shaking. Later you learn a commercial airliner has crashed a few miles away into a field.

That was the experience of one of CJL‘s own members, Ronald. Living not far from Unionville, Kansas on a fateful June morning when the plane fell from the sky.

Thanks to Ronald for allowing me to share this piece of history with you.
