We are looking forward to a drive up to Manley Hot Springs and Minto , Ak this summer.. a drive along the AMAZING Denali Hwy.. and a possible new job opprotunity for my husband.
On May 22,2011 a small town called Reading, KS was wiped off the map by an EF3 tornado. Reading is in the northern part of the county I am from. I had alot of friends there who lost everything. Thankfully all of them are alive, but a few were injured.
It was devasting to their town. But in Kansas, what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.. we are strong folks by nature and I know they will fight back from this and make the town even better than before.
Two days ago. May 26th, 2011.. my friend was killed on a motorcycle.. He was a state trooper in our county and I not only worked with him, but I knew him and his family very well. He was a great trooper, a good person and a part of our community that will never be replaced. Today was his birthday.
It makes me wish I could go home. Even for just a day.. just to be there and be some kind of support for my friends and their families. It's such a helpless feeling to live 4000 miles away from your loved ones when things go wrong.
Ehh.. I wish I had more to say. But I just dont.
Too much has happened.
But we are ok here. Still alive and kicking... and hoping for a brighter day back home for our loved ones. I tried to send them some of our sunshine.. but the postal service wasn't havin it.. :) They were too busy moving all of our mail to Denver Colorado.. (WHOOOLE other blog post)
But for now.. safe travels friends. If you ride a motorcycle. Please. PLEASE watch yourself. Be careful of the other guy.. cause you never know if they are paying attention or not.
