Question:Have you been affected by a news story?

I read a lot of news everyday so sometimes I feel like I have grown numb to a lot of the tragedy I read about. However, I was nearly in tears when I read about Dong Yun Yoon, the father who lost his whole family when a plane crashed into his home in San Diego. Not only did Yoon say he forgave the pilot and ask others to pray for him, his comments about loss were incredibly touching.
"I know there are many people who have experienced more terrible things," Yoon said. "But, please, tell me how to do it. I don't know what to do."
I'm going to be praying for Yoon and I was happy to read that he's got a lot of people around for support. I hope you'll keep him in your thoughts, too.
