Thoughts And Prayers

Recommended Posts

Do you know that feeling you can not feel quite well because someone is suffering? It could be about relatives or friends safety or health condition but in this case it is not what I am talking about. It is about my people as the north part of my country is burning again  because of massive Forest fires.

That  s why I can not feel well today. I have tried to live my daily routine as I use to live everyday but today has been really hard. Fortunately I live in a city in south that is not in dangerous but I can not help myself of feel sad and miserable for those who died, for the innocent people who lost relatives, friends, jobs or their places as they are suffering so much.

Last June 18 th died 64 people in forest fires. This weekend ( after most recent update)  died 38. There are 55 hurt people, 15 very serious hurt. A one month baby died inside his burnt place...

This link explains better what I am talking about :

Every summer this  tragedy repeats but this summer was the worst since 2006. The worst is these fires are made by people. Yeah, it is made by criminal people for earning money or simply for see everything burning.  Portuguese criminal laws must change urgently for severe punishments for these criminal people. I hope badly that these changes can happen really really soon. For sake of my people...
 
Please send a prayer , if you believe, or send a good vibe for  portuguese people. Yesterday was the sadest day ever I remember in my country history.
 
Thanks very much.

 MONICA, We are believers and our PRAYERS are with you, your people, and ALL people suffering from the current fires. We know what you are going through. About 10 +/- years ago, when we still lived in the mountains, there was a terrible fire and MANY people lost there homes. Several of them were close friends.

 If you need someone to talk to, I'm here every morning and both my wife and and I are here in the evening (I'm almost always home but I don't check my mail like I should) feel free to PM me/us.

  Your Friend,

    Mike

 PRAYERS and thoughts go out to the friends and family of those who died and those that lived thru the shooting at the Church in Texas. If I'm hearing right it's 26 dead, 20 hurt. It's the worst Church shooting in the United States history.

 Prayers and thoughts go out to the students that had to see their dead friends (so far 17 dead) and family and friends at the Florida school. They caught the lone shooter (a former student) within 2 hours of the shooting by his home.

Very sad indeed, he did some great music.

Indeed he did, 'Waiting for Love' is one of my favorites and the video was so good as well.

My thoughts go out to them. Forest fires are an all to familiar thing here. Right now in Northeastern Ontario alone we have 66 forest fires burning and one near Thunder Bay, Ontario has burned 10,000 hectares. Today we have smoke from some about 150 kilometres away, thanks to a southeasterly wind.

Tonight there are 83 fires reported in Sweden and an area of about 25,000  hectares that are burning (nearly 62,000 acres for our American/British friends).

My thoughts are with you and the firefighters. I’m in Calgary Alberta Canada, and we are affected by fires (and/or smoke) every summer. A few years back there was the massive fire in Fort McMurray, which is well north of me but the smoke was everywhere, and it took many months to extinguish. I hope you all get rain (no lightning) soon!

The situation is slowly getting better, but just as you wrote it will take months to extinguish all the fires.

What is really great is all the help Sweden has received from the European Union, we now have people working with the fires from: Italy, France, Germany, Poland, Lithuania and also from our neighbours Denmark and Norway.

 The worst way to be woken up is to hear that your daughter has been in a car crash on her way to work. As I have said elsewhen, we live in the middle of nowhere on dirt roads. All we knew at the time was that she hit a wild horse and totaled her truck. We found out later that 911 & her husband was called (perhaps) from a coworker and at the beginning of this message and was being rushed to the hospital. We called her and she could talk and said that she was sore but didn't think anything was broken. If you could see her truck you wouldn't be so sure. She also said the thought that the horse was totaled too. She still has her sense of humor ! 

 Please give your Thoughs and Prayers to our daughter JAMIE.

 Thanks everyone, just talked to our son-in-law and she is in a lot of pain but otherwise seems to be OK and he thinks "they' will be releasing her as soon as the x ray and other tests come back.
