The past two weeks have been plagued with unfortunate tragedies around the world, with many innocent lives lost or put in danger suddenly. Earlier this month there was a stabbing at a Pennsylvania high school leaving at least 22 people injured, a South Korean ferry was capsized on April 16, leaving at least 33 dead and 270 missing at the time of writing and Karpal Singh, an influential Malaysian opposition political leader, and his assistant were killed in a road accident last Thursday.
