LPMcD & KAL 007

30 years ago early in the morning I was awakened by a frantic phone call from a friend who as wondering if I'd heard the news?

Was it for real?

Larry McDonald was on a plane that had been shot down by the Russians?

I had known the congressman all my life, campaigned for him as a teenager, worked for him as a young adult, and admired his dedication.

So, I commend to you this weekend Rescue 007 detailing the horrific act when 269 innocent civilians died.

Here's a link to a CCN article citing the 30th anniversary of the event as well.

Here's a link to my earlier posts about Larry.
