No news is good news

or so they say.


I have not heard anything other than what the news is reporting. Right now, it looks like it was an MH-47, a Special Ops bird. I have it from a good source that it was not a Big Windy (Germany) bird.

Still no word from BIL but again, no news is good news. I wish they would get the details out so I could stop worrying. Even without worrying about BIL, I still worry...the Chinook community is so small. I'm bracing for the list of names to be released - that damn two degrees of separation sucks. Chances are, we either know the pilots/crew or know someone who knows them.

Either way, 17 families could use some prayers right about now. As relieved as I am that it is not OUR family, my heart aches for theirs.




And just when the scab was healing, it gets torn open again.




Pau.

My heart is just heavy with no news this morning. Praying beyond praying that this has a happy ending. =\

I have nothing profound to say. I wish my words meant something, but I know in this time they are not worthy. I am sorry for the loss in your small community.
