Always keep searchers in mind

While we read and watch the Oso tragedy, we must not forget the rescue personnel, both professional and volunteer who are working there.

These men and women are going through an experience that will haunt them the rest of their lives. They will never be able to forget the bodies and the terrible damage done to the victims.

This is multiplied a thousandfold because the victims are their friends and relatives and neighbors.

Remember to show compassion to these brave, loving men and women who are working at the scene. I hope the county and the state of Washington will have professional counseling available to these people for years to come.

They will all need our love , compassion and understanding for the rest of their lives. Please pray for them.
