Day 142 – March 22, 2011

Tragic events hit people in ways that are hard to understand.  Along the old country road stood a house, burned beyond repair.  A family was dislocated.  Memories lost.  Possessions destroyed.

I just can’t imagine the loss that this family experienced in the moment that this fire started.

How many people suffer similar loss? 

But the loss doesn’t always come from fire, earth quake or natural disaster.  Some loss comes from a husband that leaves his family.  Some loss is a result of car accidents out of the blue.  Some loss happens without warning, without a word and all we can do is watch as it happens.
