Thoughts & prayers for the people of Minnesota

I've sat here watching the news coverage of the I35 bridge collapse this evening, after listening to it on the Hugh Hewitt Radio Show earlier today, and I'm dumbfounded. the video and still pictures are amazing, and make you really think about the people involved.

It is an odd feeling to feel the shock of the event, the sadness for the loss of life, and at the same time, the inspiration and pride of watching Americans risk their own safety to help others in need of help and rescue.

Let us all say a prayer of thanks for our own well-being and for those who survived the collapse, pray for the the wounded and the families of the dead, and also pray for the community as a whole.

This will have a huge economic impact on the whole region for a very long time.
