Many friends and family members of mine have been hit by this almost-Apocalyptic event and the best I can say about it is that I am again, thankful for what I have and thankful for the people in my life.  Especially in light of all of their near-misses and tragedies.  We can never tell our loved ones enough how much we love them.  And let’s not be caught in the disgrace of denying help and good to each other.  One theme I’ve heard throughout the last few weeks is that the unimaginable happened; no one ever thought it could happen to them.
