These are my thoughts, my views, and my ramblings. I will comment on everything from the Church to politics. In all things I hope to shed the radical light of love. (But it might not happen ;))

This past week Feb 5, 2008 as most of you know there were terrible storms and tornados in Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky, and Alabama. I have seen these things on TV and even some in person, but I have never known a person killed in a storm related accident. That changed this week. My friend and classmate Michael Welch, his wife, and two kids were killed in a car wreck as they carried supplies to help those affected by the storms. They were hit from behind by an 18 wheeler also carrying supplies. http://www.wsmv.com/news/15253908/detail.html Here was a person who was trying to help in a time of need, here was someone who was embodying the gospel while so many around him here taking advantage of others, by looting, cheating, and lying to these victims. There are so many people I see every day who don't care about anyone but themselves. They go through life completely oblivious to the pain and suffering of others. Except when they are hurt, then it becomes a different story. Then THEY expect people like Michael to come and help them usually with no thanks or appreciation given. I don't understand why good people like Michael are taken from this world and selfish, jerk off people are left behind. I hope that someday I be revealed this answer. I know that someday we will all be rewarded according to our actions on earth, but now it is difficult to imagine.
