  2. oh wow, i didn't realize you lived so close to that. even here, where i am, we were very much aware of how tragic this was for everyone. it certainly does show how at these times, a community is formed. you don't necessarily have to live there to feel the loss and understand the heartache of those involved.
    i'm doing the hunt today as well.

  9. Oh yes........it makes me take a few moments and contemplate what life really is!!---*gooseflesh*.

    And the sad part is, it takes a tragedy like this to make a country bow and thank the people who serve the community and country --instead of doing it daily!!! (and I'm a guilty one too).

    This is just a great way to show your community. Thank you.

    My Saturday Photo is up.
