Prayers for West

 
Well, I can't believe that twice in one week, two awful tragedies occur just a couple of days apart.  A fertilizer plant in the small town of West, Texas exploded and has left 15 people possibly dead, about 160 wounded and others still unaccounted for.  Several houses were flattened, windows blown out and simply mass destruction was caused for miles around the plant.  It even measured on the Rictor Scale as a seismic activity and the smoke flume could be seen almost all the way to Fort Worth.  This town is just an hour and a half south of where we live and is famous in Texas for The Czech Shop and it's yummy kolaches.  Again, our prayers go out to all the families who have suffered from the blast.  I can't imagine how the coming months and years will be for this community.  Thanks and praise go to all the first responders from West and all the cities around the state who dropped everything to go and help.  These include fireman, police, doctors and citizen volunteers who once again put their lives on the line to help others.  I am overwhelmed by how big not only Texan's hearts are but people all over the country.  Thank you.
