Talk about Stupid Irony

Woman who missed doomed Air France flight dies in car crash

I don't mean to be glib, but wow. Talk about irony.

I recall seeing the modern remake of H.G. Well's Time Machine. The whole point as to why the fellow invented the time machine was to prevent his girlfriend from being killed. However, when ever the scientist fellow goes back in time to "rescue" his girl friend from her death, as it were, he would set into motion the circumstances that would cause her to die in some other fashion. If it wasn't a mugger shooting her, it was a car running over her, etc. And as one character notes, "Perhaps this is when she was suppose to die."

There certainly is a sermon illustration with this story. I am reminded of Hebrews 9:27, It's appointed unto man once to die, and then the judgment. All men, no matter how much effort they may take to be healthy, safe, and prevent accidents, will die.
