Before and After

The bridge was there and then it was not. Cars, trucks, a bus full of kids coming back from the beach. Four are known dead so far, many are hurt, many are still missing. Another reminder that life is so very fragile.

Almighty God, we entrust all who are dear to us to thy
never‑failing care and love, for this life and the life to come,
knowing that thou art doing for them better things than we
can desire or pray for; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Book of Common Prayer

thank you for this! I couldn't get a picture, just a link!
And thanks for the prayers, too.

The morning after.... we hoped, as one of the anchors said, it was all a dream. The one good thing I keep hearing consistently is of all those who risked their own lives to help others, bystanders, those in other cars, the responders, and the outpouring of prayers and support from across the country and the world. And because of other earlier horror how ready the system was to respond. Lives were saved because communication and transporation and trauma teams were all in motion in a heartbeat. But it is still such a sad day for many in Minnesota.

Thank you. I also thank you for the backwards counting Bush meter. After seeing Katherine E's, I had to add that to my blog also.
