Aftermath in Arizona
I must admit that today just feels numb. As an Arizonan I cannot help but feel deeply saddened for the random senseless act that resulted in so much chaos and grief which occurred in such close proximity to me, and at the precise time that my wife (who I nearly lost to illness this past October) was stopping by our local Safeway store to do the weekly shopping after her doctor’s appointment. I couldn’t help but reflect back on how it felt, sitting at her bedside in the intensive care unit not knowing what tomorrow would hold in store.
It actually made me relive the thoughts, the feelings, and the fears, that I experienced just a few short months ago. I pray for the families, friends, and loved ones of all who were touched by yesterday’s unconscionable acts of violence.
My simple blog message today, is to be sure to tell (all who are) those special to you, that you love them. Know that you are truly blessed, and may we as a society receive healing in our sadness, and strength to persevere into tomorrow.
Even the desert cactus that is so rugged, and endures the life taking desert heat, and the unyielding scorching sun, manages to survive and show its beauty for all to behold. May we all be of one mind, that we might live in peace, and may the GOD of peace and light delight to dwell within us, and continue to Bless Us All!
