I've done my share of "stupid"... weren't my time.
What I learned..."Lose the lumps, not the lesson."
Bad/poor human decision processes occur in all our endeavors...sometimes they have "lessons" with permanent consequences. Death is surely one of those "permanent" consequences.
But we continue to learn and sometimes re-learn lessons. Ever hear the quote; "The definition of insanity: Doing something the same way that continues to fail, and expecting different results." ?
Loss of these lives and the consequences they leave behind are both "lumps" and "lessons"... which of these will be their legacy, is up to us.
If we don't learn from it, yup, their loss is even more tragic.

Reason: spelling check (speaking of learning lessons!)
