I beg you take courage; the brave soul can mend even disaster.
Our hearts go out to Joplin this week. We are saddened by the loss of life. We hope and pray for many miracles to happen as the time progresses and more people are found alive and well.
This incident, along with everything else that has been happening this year, and really the past few years, has been quite interesting. Tornado's, Tsunamis, Earthquakes, Flooding. And my guess is that this may just be the beginning. Either I am becoming a lot more aware of natural disasters, or they are really happening a lot more often.
Staying away from the religious tenets that came up in my last post, all of these disasters have caused me to consider me and my family. Would we be prepared in the case of one of these things happening near me? Would I be able to take care of and keep safe my little ones (though, some, not so little any more)? Do we have a sufficient emergency plan that everybody would know what to do or where to go in case of emergency?
I hope that each of you take opportunity to consider what you would do under similar circumstances in Joplin. Or in Japan. Or Haiti. Or in your own backyard with your own possible disaster circumstances. For those of us not directly affected, we have more time to consider and prepare for the disaster that may ultimately change our life.
Hope you are ready. For if ye are prepared, ye shall not fear. Or something like that.
