A prayer for the people of Minnesota August 1, 2007

Posted by daveintexas in Current Events.

I don’t know what to say.  I don’t know how bad it is.

From what I’ve seen so far, it’s bad.

For those of you who don’t know, God grant you strength through the night.

For those of you who do know, the worst, God grant you strength and comfort, in your most difficult time.

I don’t know what else to pray for, but if some of you offer up some thoughts, I’d welcome them right now.

They’re saying at least 7 dead so far…

“Kids between the ages of 5 and 13 were on the school bus that was on the bridge that collapsed. A few of the kids had to be carried off the bus. All of them headed to the American Red Cross.

New at 10:34 p.m.:

One young man helped all of the children out of the back door of the bus that contained 60 children. Instead of rushing to safety many other people ran to the bus to help the children. All of those kids are safe.”

“The bus the had 60 children inside landed in a way that did not toss the children out of the bus. People were able to help the kids out of the bus through the back door.”

I can’t believe that this could have happened. What an awful day in Minneapolis. I’m pretty sure I drove across that bridge a couple of times back in 2002-2003, thinking nothing of it. Just like the people today were thinking.

What an awful day in Minneapolis.

There was lots of finger-pointing and pontificating on FOX this AM concerning this tragedy.

I am just amazed that more were not killed.

It looks like a long drop to the river…

Be thankful for the men who do such dangerous jobs.

One of our customers lost a crew member on that bridge yesterday.

Oh no.

Words fail me at times like this. One thing that I found heartening was the account of so many people rushing to that school bus to save those kids. Such heroism deserves recognition, and our admiration.

This is just so sad for all the families who lost someone or who do not yet know the fate of their loved ones. My heart and prayers go out to them and my admiration for all the heroes who went to the aid of those in distress.

God bless them all.
