OT: child hostages in Russia

Post by Janne » Sat, 04 Sep 2004 06:16:16



I just had to post, i'm here with the news on TV and they are talking about
the children taken hostage in Russia.  My heart goes out to all those
parents, although i could not begin to imagine how they are all feeling let
alone coping.

It just makes me so sad, that people are that desperate for their message to
be heard that they have to take such actions.  Lets just pray that there
will be a peaceful outcome and soon and that everyone can be reunited.

The last I heard was they had let 30 women and children go, but they
were still refusing to have water, food and medicines supplied for
the hostages.  It's been about 48 hours since they were taken hostage.

The news on the BBC this morning is appalling.  My heart goes out to those
parents and children involved.  Prayers from Tucson.

Yeah.

The fact that the hostage takers would treat CHILDREN that way
completely undermines their cause.  Reports now say that they wouldn't
even let the children have water.  And then of course they actually did
shoot dozens of them once the firefight started.

I wouldn't waste my spit on a Chechen rebel now.

I guess I will never understand how evil or desperate people can be.  How
can anyone use the true innocents in a society to get what they want?  My
prayers are with the powers that be over there to do the right thing and get
everyone safe.  Then get the bad guys!!

JMHO, Linda

I can't bear to read it or listen to it.  I just hugged Jame and gave
him an extra kiss as he went off with friends to the beach for a BBQ.

They do have my prayers, but I cannot dwell on it.

my dad would refer to them as savages.
anyone using children to promote their
cause doesn't have a place in the world
with civilized folk.  I don't care how bad
you have been treated or what the reason.

In the paper today there is a story about a woman that was released but had
to choose between her 6 month old son and 5 year old daughter.  They were
told pack your things and leave quickly 1 child per Mother.  This woman's
SIL is still inside with her 5 year old.  She said her daughter cried and
called for her as she left.   I cannot imagine.  The actual count is well
over 345 people and probably closer to 1,000.   What horrible situation.

Taria, your dad would be absolutely right. Nobody, no cause could justify
that. Polly

I read this morning somewhere online that the mother and daughter were
reunited.  The daughter was pulled out by a 15 yr old boy was
explosives started to go off or a fire had started in the gym area.  I
did see a segment on tv last night from a British journalist showing
the remains of the gym including bodies.  Not a pretty site and oh so
sad.

But I was so glad to hear the mother and daughter were reunited.  I
could not imagine having to leave a child behind all the while hearing
them call for you knowing there wasn't anything you could do except to
possibly lose your life and the second child's life as well.  Such a
hard decision for her to make.

Prayers go out for those who lost loved ones and those who were
fortunate enough to be reunited. It will be a long road to recovery
for those children as well as ***s.

Hi Marilyn,  I did not see that yet.  I am so happy for her and her family.
Something like that could make her lose her sanity from the guilt and loss.
Many people were killed and 3 of the terrorists are said to have escaped.  I
really hope they catch them.  All the people should raise up and finish
this.  Any just cause they may have had is lost and people in Russia need to
deal harshly with them.

Prayers for the survivors and the victims.  Linda

Wonderful to hear that the child is safe with her mother again.
Now she can spend the rest of her life knowing her mother chose
to save the baby brother and leave her behind. It was an awful
situation for a mother. Her mother made a choice, and I can't
fight her on it, but mine would have been different. I would have
stayed behind with both of my children; I would not have left one
behind to fend for himself.  JMO .... but I was not there and
have been spared such horrors in my life. PAT

she might not have been given that option Pat.  My thought was
the rejection thing too though.  Rotten any way around.
