Posted on 07/12/2009 2:03:46 PM PDT by lastchance

I just read on the Stand Firm in Faith site that there as been a very tragic accident involving a church bus from the First Baptis Church of Shreveport, La. The bus was on the way to camp when the accident happened in Meridan, Mississippi.

One child died at the scene and 23 others have been taken to area hospitals.

The location given is close to Kewanee, Mississippi near the Highway 11 and Highway 80 exit off Interstate 20/59, just a few miles west of the Alabama State line.

Prayers for the child and family. God give them peace. Also prayers for the rest of the children who were injured. Hope and pray everyone of them recovers.

One of the injured was airlifted straight from the scene to University Medical Center in Jackson...

Excellent facility! This is terrible news.

My prayers for the families.

At least two passengers were trapped underneath the bus. A group of National Guard soldiers was on the highway at the time and helped extricate the injured.

God Bless the Guard!

AP Story

I'm not clear on the location. Hwy 80 and 11 cross I-20 near Meehan Junction. Is this the correct locastion?

Prayers for all involved and the National Guard.

How very sad in all cases, but especially when high expectations turn to tragedy!

I7, Meehan Junction is west of Meridian.
The accident occurred between Meridian and the Alabama line.

This is terrible!
My thoughts and prayers are with the children, and their families.

Thank you for the ping, WKB.
Didn’t you know the Meridian Star isn’t with Gannett? ;o)

Oh dear Lord, please be with these children and with their families as they sort through this tragedy. Still the storm of fears in the children as they wait for Mom & Dad, and give strength and courage to Mom & Dad as they try to reach their children. Peace in the turmoil through your presence Dear Jesus.

Off topic, but wifey and I drove through Meridian about a month ago on our way into Butler, AL.....pretty wooded country.

Our only previous MS experience had been the gulf coast, but we wanted to go to the little town where my recently departed mom had grown up...true "Deep South"; loved it all.

That was a very nice thing to say!
Thank you so much.

The drive from Meridian to Butler is very pretty.

I’m glad you enjoyed yourself, and hope you got some good eats while you were there.

Unfortunately, our eats had to wait until a DQ in Jackson, Alabama.....but it was good; we don't have many of those here in California - but were impressed. On our trip we'd made it a priority to "go local" but the crappy weather that particular day didn't cooperate.

Dad died a year and a half ago (age 94), and Mom (on the berge of 88) followed him 18 months to the day -- so we felt it was time to pay them this little homage.

Comforting to know the old folks had such beautiful surroundings during their early years. We'll miss them both.

Wifey hails from Minnesota, but over the years she's come to share my love of the south, and all things "Southern". In the area, we both felt like we were "home"............something that New Yorkers and most Californians would be mystfied by.

I’m sorry to hear you’ve lost both parents.
Your mother must have passed very recently.
My sincere condolences to you and yours.
I lost my daddy about 2.5 years ago, and it’s not fun at all.

I’m glad you were able to see where they grew up.
A place can tell one a lot about another person.
Knowing them as well as you did, I think it was a great trip to make.

It makes me happy that you and your wife enjoy the south.
We’re not feeling the love very much lately from the Republican party.
In fact, I recently left the party.
An attack on Sarah Palin is an attack on me.
I voted for her last fall, and McCain just happened to benefit from that vote.

You don’t have many DQs in CA?
That’s too bad because their food is very good even if it would save time to apply it directly to your thighs. ;o)

Do you have any Sonics?
Del Tacos?

I discovered del Taco during a business trip with my husband to Palm Springs.
We loved it so much that we ended up renting a car just so we could get a snack there every day!
