This morning a fatal plane catastrophy happened.. A plane with many Polish officials on board has crashed in Smolensk, apparently there are no survivors.
Lech Kaczynski, the President, and his wife were among the victims of the crash. Also S. Skrzypek, head of Polish National Bank was killed among 132 of other passengers.

I was not a supporter of the President, nor of Mr. Skrzypek (I still remember our endless discussions about his competency when I was studying and my previous professor was almost nominated to this spot instead of Mr. Skrzypek). But this accident is horrible, terrifying and I am deeply sorry for all the families of the victims.

I also hope that the government that is having an extraordinary meeting right now will be able to control the current chaos in the country as soon as possible.

A brief candle; both ends burning
An endless mile; a bus wheel turning
A friend to share the lonesome times
A handshake and a sip of wine
So say it loud and let it ring
We are all a part of everything
The future, present and the past
Fly on proud bird
You're free at last.

written en route to the funeral for his friend, Ronnie Van Zant of the band, Lynyrd Skynyrd.
