I live and work in Minneapolis, and last night I was safe in my home when the Bridge over the Mississippi went crashing down. Following the news, I tried to get in touch with my husband, but Cel phone coverage was not available due to overuse. I did get a hold of him later on so I knew that he was OK.
I’m grateful that nobody I know was involved in this devastating tragedy. According to the Officials there are 4 Dead, 79 Hurt, Up To 30 Still Missing. Behind the wheel, Dennis Winegar fought to keep their Houston family’s Chrysler 300M under control. Here’s his first-hand account:
“I slammed on my brakes and saw something in front of me disappear and then my car pointed straight down and we fell.” He estimated they dropped about 50 feet, landing on a smaller car below them.
Other drivers were getting out of their cars and trying to help people off the bridge.
“Angels is what I call them,” Jamie Winegar said.
So now I would like to ask all of you who read this blog regularly to send your Reiki or other healing energy to Minneapolis and the Mississippi river. With so many still missing, my heart goes out to the families, it’s terrible not knowing.
