I also was there with three friends and our grandchildren, how disturbing this is . I have pictures of the hellicopter and the paramedics and all the people involved. We were devistated thinking what can we do next to help; we inerlocked arms with approx. 60 others to comb the swim area. The system needs to think what else can he do out in society before they release this nut

the word bewegan http://www.outletcoachstoday.com meant "to cover, envelop", http://www.coachoutletod.com rather than "to move". http://www.coachs-outletcar.com Preference of one synonym http://www.coachoutletdp.com over another also causes http://www.coachoutletwo.com differentiation in lexis, even http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com where both words are Germanic, as http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net in English care vs. German Sorge. http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org Both words descend http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net from Proto-Germanic *karō and *surgō respectively, http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com/ but *karō has become the dominant http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com word in English http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com for "care" while in German, Dutch, http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org and Scandinavian http://www.coachoutletrf.com languages, the http://www.coachfactoryonlinebp.com *surgō root prevailed. *Surgō still survives in http://www.coachoutletuser.net English, however, as sorrow.
