  • The sinking of the Iranian ship Viaqtar killed 105 of the 180 people on board. The ship bringing Muslims back to Iran after their pilgrimage to Mecca, capsized and sank off of the coast of Abu Dhabi.

  1. God, that’s horrible. You’re coming back from a pilgrimage. After doing something that sacred, the last thing you think is something terrible is going to happen right afterwards, I would think.

    • Not that these things no longer happen but it seems like the late 60’s -early 70’s – there was a tragedy a day– especially among the airlines– a lot of plane crashes.

  2. I was very happy in the ’70s. I must have been closed off to what was going on in the wider world, ’cause I don’t remember much of that….
