Running into the Fire

on May 21, 2013

It’s difficult to write a blog knowing that so many people are suffering right now in Oklahoma. The devastation left by the mile-wide tornado isn’t going to disappear in the next day or week. It takes months to clear the debris, to rebuild homes, to repairs roads and utilities and businesses. Everything can be replaced, except people. It’s those left behind that I ache for. I can not imagine — I do not want to imagine — what people who have lost more than their home or business are feeling.
