    So today is the 12th of October 2012 so that means its been 10 years since the Bali bombings. R.I.P. to the people that lost their life that day. May their friends an families find some closure in the horrible event, knowing their loved ones are finally at peace.

    I think this is a good opportunity to reflect on human nature and our tenancy to get our priorities mixed up. The human life is all we really have, lets treasure it and become better people.

    I have a mate that was there that night, it was his birthday and him and his mates were drinking on the beach. They were planning to go to the clubs but they then decided to keep drinking on the beach. Lucky because he wouldn't be with us today if he had made the other decision.

    Oh your one of 'those' guys...

    Never mourn the loss of anyone, because somewhere there is something more tragic.

    OP - well said. I have lots of in-laws in Perth that go to Bali very regularly and am extremely thankful that they were not there at the time. Live in the present, you never know what tomorrow may bring.
