Tweet of the Day: Pau Gasol shows compassion for train victims

train wreckFollowing Los Angeles Lakers’ forward Pau Gasol on Twitter might be the equivalent to being friends with Patch Adams.

He has a tremendous heart for others.

He is always mindful of the tragedies, the hurts and pains going on around the world.

Unfortunately, Wednesday, tragedy struck much closer to home. Santiago de Compostela, 700 miles from Gasol’s native city of Barcelona.

According to BBC News, a train traveling from Madrid to Ferrol came off the tracks near Santiago de Compostela.

The Guardian is reporting that the train was carrying about 247 passengers, of which at least 45 are dead and some 70 more are injured.

Fellow Spaniard and Dallas Mavericks’ point guard José Calderón—who hails from Villanueva de la Serena—also shared sympathies for the victims and their families.

Our thoughts and prayers are also with those victims and their families.
