Teny,

I do not have t.v. and am behind in my newspaper reading a few days, so I was not aware of it. I am sorry...I will pray for you and for your country, and for everyone there.

Teny,

I heard about your country on the news this morning. I pray for your safety. We've had some really bad weather here in the U.S. as well. So far, I have been lucky to live in the Northwest and I thank God for that. Stay safe and let us know how things are going.

Teny, dear ~

I am so very sorry. These things are so very difficult for us to understand ~ the unfairness of it all ~ as if losing your beloved was not enough for you to endure . . .

We all are thinking of you, holding you in our hearts, and praying for the safety and protection of your countrymen.

Dear Ones,

This came to me as a Private Message from Spela, with her request that it be posted "on the forum (on some appropriate place)":

I don't know where to post this ...

Croatia mourns 8 firefighters who died in a wildwire on Kornati islands.

http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2007/09/03/...irefighters.php

Today another firefighter, 23 years old, died in hospital. His father and his brother were also killed in that fire.

I didn't know any of them, however, it's my neughbour country and I know the area and sometimes spend my holidays there.

It is hard to know how to reply. I will be praying for these firefighters. So much devastation is hard to assimilate. There is so much need in our world. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
