No Poem This Morning

	
        Dear soup friends,
	
	There’s no poem this morning; living in central Oklahoma is too 	sad and painful. 
	
	Any death is one too many, especially when innocent children are the victims. It’s almost      more than the soul can bear, especially for those who have lost their families. Homes can be 	rebuilt, lost possessions replaced or forgotten, but not the lives of those held dear.
	
	Ten miles south of total devastation, I am safe with my family, our lives not destroyed by a random yet ordinary natural event in Oklahoma, the third in the same area since 1999. I ask for your kind thoughts and remembrance as we struggle through the aftermath of nature’s wrath yet again.
	
	Jack Jordan

    So sorry for the devastation and loss that has touched your neighbors there. We are following this with heavy hearts in Las Vegas. Very glad to hear you are safe.

    I live a bit more than ten miles away, and there was barely any rain. I'm still shocked. I was here when the 1999 tornado went through the same place. It was awful then, and still is. Thanks for your reply... Jack

    I'm also very saddened when I hear this on the news. Living in Idaho I'm not familiar with tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes... my thoughts and prayers go out to you! I'm happy you weren't directly in line with the disaster... but I imagine it affects you nonetheless being that it's in your state.

    Thank you, Richard. As I said, events did not affect us directly, but the indirect impact is regional, especially living close to the disaster area as we do... Jack

    I can't express how the people of this area is in my prayers this day-- for their loss and devistation. I and mine are praying for you all.
