    1. Let’s be realistic. Everyone will comment how ‘enough is enough’, ‘Moshiach has to come’, & ‘how come the person was negligent & hit the kid’. The bottom line is everyone will go right back to behaving as they always do! Instead of posting those aforementioned comments, please take a minute to reflect on what you can correct in your lives. Our Bein Odom Lchaveiro is non-existent, our Loshon Hora out of control! Start by working on something small – it will then lead to bigger things. May we hear only Simchos from now on.

      • It’s a horrifying tragedy regardless of the name. This is so very sad, The child Avrohom Gershon Tress was the son of Elimelch (named after HIS famous grandfater, Mike Elimelech Tress, who died as a fairly young man) who is the son of Avrohom Gershon who died tragically of a fatal illness a few decades ago and left an almanah with a large family.
        The chain of tragedies is that Avrohom Gershon ben Elimelch ben Avrohom Gershon ben Elimelech…….Zechusam Yagen Aleinu.
        I wish the family as much nechamah as they can possibly accept at this nightmarish time.

    2. Following the terrible tragedies of the 2 recent kinderlucht run over by a school bus and car. Maybe just maybe is it possible young children at these ages need more supervision?

      • or maybe just maybe they’re nebech being the korban of us adults who need to mend our ways!?!?!?! EVERYONE should please try to take upon themselves something small now!!

    3. I agree 100% If we have proper Bein Odom Lchaveiro then Klal Yisroel is one. Hashem as we all know loves this and once we are one, the world is ours to enjoy in both ruchnious and gashmious . Bad things leave us alone when we treat each other the right way. Remember the words of Hillil Hatzadik.

      Happy Purim to all !

      When tragedy strikes people tend to wonder perhaps we could’ve done more to help?

      I have a relative who was R’L niftar because help did not arrive on time.
      In both recent tragedies Hatzolah was there withing minutes. At least the families don’t have to grive with the thought that maybe they coulda been saved.

    5. Who is the mother of the child? BDE. Adar is supposed to be a month of simcha! So many tragedies already. How about Reb Liebish Lieser’s daughter in Belgieum. Any update on her condition?

    6. To #22-
      What nerve you have-
      The member responded very quickly and started CPR on a child in traumatic arrest- Gd knows what else was wrong with this boy after not being hit by a car, but for a child who was run over by a car-
      He continued CPR until other help arrived-
      As we all know Gd has his plan etc-
      I sincerely hope you mend your ways or at least keep your ugly comments to yourself next time-
      And by the way, what did you do for Klal Yisroel recently?
