The Evening's Events

I can't exactly find words for the emotions I have felt this week between Boston and the Waco explosions, as well as the ricin scares. These emotions reached a real high last night after learning that a Boston University Police Officer had been shot and killed, somewhere inside me I just knew this was connected to the Marathon bombing. My heart sank. Then, this morning when I woke up to all of my CNN alerts about the shoot out, the car hijacking, and the death of one of the suspects, I could feel myself take another blow. I'm sure many of you are feeling the same way, and I encourage you to share these emotions with God, as well as others whether it is with a loved one, a friend, or the blog world. Whatever you do, remember God is your stronghold and your strength, and that you can find refuge in him during this rough time.

I think it is important that we all take a minute out of our day to pray for all of the first responders that have risked their lives for our safety over the past week. Those that have left their families behind knowing that they were going into a possibly dangerous week ahead of them. Those that, despite of this, still went to work prepared to do their jobs to the fullest. I find myself really inspired by our first responders and military forces. They are so selfless in my opinion. Please, take time today to thank those individuals in your life that put theirs on the line everyday so that you might feel more safe.
