A day after South Korean immigrant Dong Yun Yoon lost his two young daughters, his wife, and his mother-in-law when a military jet crashed into their house in San Diego, the bereaved man prayed for the well-being of the pilot:

“Nobody expected such a horrible thing to happen, especially right here, our house.” . . .

Yoon said he bore no ill will toward the Marine Corps pilot who ejected safely before the jet plunged into the neighborhood two miles west of the runway at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. “I pray for him not to suffer for this action,” Yoon said. “I know he’s one of our treasures for our country.”
