One man dies in a freak accident, and the news stops the world. Steve Irwin is the talk of the US TV stations. His zoo is surrounded by flowers.

Another man dies doing what he loved, and the news stops Australia. Peter Brock was a great racing driver, who died yesterday in a crash. Mount Panorama racing circuit, where he won Bathurst a record 9 times, is surrounded by flowers.

Up to 22 people die when a rubbish dump collapses at Bantar Gebang in Bekasi, east of Jakarta.

No one will put flowers out to remember them.

I am sorry that their lives are so undervalued.

I used to work in Bekasi and my driver took a wrong turn (what a surprise) and we ended up in that area! Soul destroying is the only expression that I can use!

well PB, hope I'm not missunderstood with what you said in your post frown
sometimes for some people to get something in their life, they also must make a sacrifice something...even they make a secrifice with their life..
life is a struggle..struggle is life and struggle makes us more alive!

I meant how sad it is that some poeple are so poor that they must scavenge on a rubish tip, and die among the rubish.

Here in Australia we are shocked over the death of two men. We are not shocked about the death of 22 men in Indonesia.

In the West we have poor values.
