A Vigil and week of silence...(Journal#77)

(Update as of August 20th~ I had decided to leave this blog entry longer than a week and until the last body was recovered. That happened tonight, bringing the death toll to 13, with well over 100 injured. Prayers for all involved.)

...for our community here in Minneapolis and the victims, survivors, search teams and especially all the families still waiting to here word on the missing of the Mississippi Interstate 35W Bridge.

Today, as we drove to the University of Minnesota, as we have been the last two weeks...it was creepy and surreal. Having to go over the Intertate 94 bridge instead, and seeing the rescue boats in the river was chilling, knowing there are still cars with family members of people here below us in the flowing river. Again a reminder of how important each day is. Peace and prayers for all our fellow Minnesotans, and a week of blogging silence for me. Shalom.

I am still stunned and so saddened for the MN families that have lost a loved one and all the other MN folks that are in shock....Praying with compassion now.

It's so sad, isn't it? You don't get up, go to work and drive home expecting this.

Glad you guys are all ok.
