My thoughts and prayers….




This week has been rough for our country, starting on Monday in Boston, then West TX on Wednesday,  and now the ‘Shelter in Place’ for Boston and surrounding towns.

So much sorrow and pain for the losses that had been suffered. The injuries that others will be dealing with for the rest of their lives. The emotional and mental trauma the rest of us will be dealing with as well.

Yet we’ve seen the heroism and the best of human nature shine this week as well. The first responders who are trained for terrible moments like this, yet most probably hope they never had to see one. The volunteers and by-standers who rushed toward the chaos instead of running away. The doctors and nurses in all the hospitals that worked tirelessly to save the injured. The police and military people risking their lives to find the suspects who caused the terror in Boston on Monday and what is happening now.

The firefighters in West TX who volunteered to fight fires, but never thought they would have to deal with an explosion in their town. The search and rescue teams digging through the rubble to try and find  any survivors. We must keep them in our thoughts as well because they will be dealing with the trauma for a long time from  now.

The terrorists (and like someone said…anyone who uses violence to create terror is a terrorist. It doesn’t have to be politically or religiously motivated) wanted to disrupt our lives, yet they have brought us closer together. The destruction in West TX will bring that community closer together as well.

We must lift each other up, and hold each other close, because life is short and you never know what might happen each time you step out of your house.

Hugs to all of you…and hopefully next week will be better for everyone.

    My deepest sympathy goes out the victims and their families in both of these incidents. My great admiration and respect goes to all those who responded to the needs of of the victims with selfless disregard of their own safety. To the people of Boston and West TX I send a wish that they have the strength to cope with the aftermath of the devastation. The people of the USA the hope you can stay strong and stand tall and carry one with your lives.
    Here in the UK we can all understand and sympathize with the feeling of shock and grief you are all feeling.
