history does not repeat, but it rhymes.

i was young when this happened, but i still remember it like it was today.

Shootdown of Korean Air Flight KAL007

http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20085947,00.html

historical footnote:

There were 269 people aboard, including US Rep. Lawrence McDonald (D) of Georgia. There were no known survivors.

Rep. McDonald was originally scheduled to fly on on a previous flight. He missed that plane by just minutes because of a thunderstorm. He passed on a Pan Am flight to take advantage of a sponsored ticket for KAL007.

About 8000 children had been killed in Syria by about this time a year ago. Children who had done nothing but try to grow up. This debacle continues today.
