Fires

God, the California fires are so scary and make me sad. I don’t know if it was of natural causes or carelessness of man, but my heart ❤️ goes out to all of those folks.

It’s one of those situations you pray you never have to experience. The first responders must have nerves of steel, but God bless them and their families. It can’t be easy.

I know I get a little nervous here when I see new construction going up and it seems to get closer to the neighboring house with each new one going up. I look at the new construction and think that it only takes one spark to start an inferno.

Here’s hoping we all stay safe!

Fifteen

Fifteen years…**sigh**

In my previous post, I told you about a documentary on 9/10 on YouTube. In it, one artist did a beautiful time-lapse film from the artist’s lofts in tower one. It was entitled,”One never dies the day before”.

Fifteen years ago, it was the day when thousands of lives were lost: be it World Trade Centers, Pentagon, or in a field in southwestern Pennsylvania, they were gone, families were changed forever, injuries….I could go on and on.

I worked in downtown Philadelphia then and remember, for the first time, being nervous about working in a 7th floor office. I waited with thousands to get public transit home, and never prayed so much in my life. My life and security, like the rest of America, was changed forever.

For the innocent victims of that day, may they have eternal rest.

God bless America.
