Tornado in Washington, IL

Hello friends.

Washington, Illinois is fifteen minutes from my home. 
It's where L attends parochial school.
It's where we hope to move to and raise our kids.
It's where several of my family members and many of my friends live.

Today a powerful tornado went through Washington, along with many other Illinois towns. 
Hundreds of homes were completely ruined.
At this time there is one confirmed death and another eight critically wounded at the hospital.
Thanks be to God, my family is all safe.

Please pray for the people of Washington and all those affected by the storms.
Thank you.

  2. Wow! I'm glad you and your family are safe.

  3. Natural disasters are really no good. Definitely praying for Illinois!

  4. Lordy Lordy. I sure will be praying for everyone affected. So glad that you are safe.

  5. Thanks for letting us know. I'm glad you're safe and will be praying for those who were affected.
