This has been a hard month for Texas. Just one month ago today the West Fertilizer plant exploded, and this week Tornadoes ravaged through Granbury, Cleburne, and Ennis. Our prayers continue to go up for those affected. If you would like to help in other ways, there's a list ways to help the with the tornado relief here, and donations for West (where there is still so much need) can be sent here. Also, there is a collection of items being sold on Etsy to help West, and if you are in Texas you can find events benefiting victims here.
I've been touched by how tragedies connect people. During the first night after the explosion in west, Doctors who just days before had been treating victims of the Bombing of the Boston marathon ordered pizzas for doctors at Providence hospital treating victims of the West explosion. TJX companies, who's headquarters are in Boston, up til this week had been the top donor to the Waco Foundation fund for West victims, and when "ways to help west" became harder to find on google, one of the first "links" I found under that search was someone from Boston posting on a Yahoo Answers wanting to know where to donate.
And today I read this...
"...among the first offers of help that came in to Granbury on Wednesday night was a phone call from West — offering to send 300 meals to those in need."
-Dallas Morning News, "Tragic Ties Bind West, Granbury, and Cleburne"
Wow...that's all I can say. Wow.
