This week has been a tough one for so many.
We're all relieved that the Boston situation has been resolved however mourn for the families that have lost loved ones. Thankfully the second suspect was captured, we all hope there will be answers to our questions.
We also mourn with the people of West, Texas. What a tragedy.
At the time of this writing, the final count hasn't been determined.
The loss of life and devastation is hard to process.
Through this all, there is also a sense of pride.
The work of the FBI in finding the two suspects out of all the people and thousands of photos
is nothing short of amazing.
The "First Responders" put their lives on the line each and every day.
Tragically, some were lost this week...they gave their all.
Then there's the outpouring of care and concern.
It seems that when there's a tragedy, people become united
and come to the aid of each other without hesitation.
We have to remember that we are one nation under God.
America isn't perfect, but at the end of the day,
I can't help but say,
I'm proud to be an American.
God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Psalm 46: 1-2a
