Prayers for West, TX

I was going to publish my other post I had written but because of what happened last night, I decided I'd postpone that. Especially after watching this video...

***NOTE: This video was tough to watch. It shows the actual explosion. 

West, Texas (an actual town; not just western Texas) is a tiny town in central Texas. The fertilizer plant there exploded last night. There are several unconfirmed deaths and numerous injured.
This just hits too close to home for me. I grew up in Belton, which is an hour away from West. There were reports of people from my hometown recognizing the explosion when it happened. That just goes to show you how intense the explosion was.

Please pray for the small town of West and the families there. My heart breaks.

  1. My co worker literally just sent me that video. I teared up on my way to work listening to someone call into a radio station that lives in West, TX. It's SO sad and that explosion was so big.

  2. I watched that video with A this morning and I started crying. I had a few sorority sisters from West and immediately was just so sad for them. Small town communities are so tightly knit and I can't even imagine what they are going through right now.

  6. We live in Belton, close to Sparta Valley Park which is so close to fort hood, theres always artillery and stuff being blown up all the time that we didnt realize that the BIG one was the one from West Texas. Its so sad and the explosion was hard to watch.
