15 Years Ago . . . 2:17 PM (CET)

By Bobby

A friend of mine served on a missions trip to Brazil, and while in college, she noted the hordes of people who mourn on May 1 in that nation.

Fifteen years later, let's remember the circumstances as we remember fifteen years ago the situation that took place at 2:17 PM Central European Time . . .

EDITOR'S UPDATE: Bobby is, of course, referring to the anniversary of the death of the great Formula 1 champion Ayrton Senna, who was killed during the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. Here is the BBC coverage from that somber day.

A couple of things to note: changes were made to the San Marino circuit, and the Grand Prix continued there through the 2006 season. And from that day until this, praise God, Ayrton Senna remains the last F1 driver to lose his life in a crash.
