Tragedy at NRG Park

Hello bloggies.  By now, most of you, if not all, have heard about the tragedy that occurred in my fair city on Friday night at a Travis Scott concert.  My heart aches for all of the victims and their families.  My head is still spinning, wondering how going to such a normal activity such as attending a concert, can turn so deadly.  I know, I know, bad things happen anywhere and at any given time.  However, I can bet that no one, could ever have imagined the chaos and the devastating events that transpired.  I personally know a hand-full of kids that were in attendance that night.  By God's grace, all of them are accounted for and made it home to their families in one piece. Shaken of course, but alive.  Such a senseless, senseless tragedy.  I know right now that the blame game is strong, there is alot of finger-pointing, passing the buck, sketchy details emerging and the legal community ready to seek justice for such egregious negligence.  I pray with every fiber of my being that something good comes out of this, something positive so this will never happen again.  I pray that the lives lost will not have died in vain.  And I ask you bloggies, if you are of the praying kind, to please join me and ask for strength, guidance and grace.

Already with you on the prayers...doubts that it won't happen again. Every generation needs to learn it once, it seems, and maybe this generation more than most.

This tragedy is not the first time people have died in a crushing crowd at a concert and it most likely won't be the last, although I wish it could be. When an event of this kind occurs in one's own city, it's especially painful.

Love,
Janie
