It's all over the news and even more live, all over our community. A natural disaster happened . . . 15 mins from our home. Over 24 people have already lost their lives and there is still a list of over 100 missing. FEMA, Red Cross, Governors, Mayors and the National Guard are in our little town being interviewed in front of our little post office and helping with the rescue/recovery efforts. We have friends who have had to evacuate their homes as the river was quickly approaching their homes as well and know friends who are fire fighters who have been working tirelessly around the clock out in the elements risking their own lives for the lives of others. But we are not on the front lines. It's very surreal to see this all unfolding in our little town . . . but I read a blog post that explains our feelings better than I could put into words . . . the author even lives in the same part of town as us.
We're not Oso but we know who is . . .
Pray for our community. Pray for the families who have lost everything. Pray for the families that have been separated by death. Pray for the families who are on the front lines helping with everything they've got. Pray for the after math of such a devastating disaster. Pray for the people of Oso and all those touched by this unbelievable tragedy.
