Out Of Control

These are some of the messages I have received on my pager in the past 24 hours:

23:30 10-10 WHOLE BAR FIGHTING CHAIRS AND BROKEN BOTTLES USED

11:37 REPORTS OF A PLANE DOWN

14:41 PLANE CONFIRMED DOWN, WOODS IN FLAMES ONE PT WITH INJURIES
Translation: At 11:23 last night there was a full blown bar fight. Early this morning a 95-year-old woman passed away of natural causes. At about 11:30 this morning there was a multi-vehicle automobile accident, all lanes of the interstate northbound and southbound were shut down, two people were trapped in a vehicle. At 11:38 two air ambulance helicopters were enroute, the haz-mat team was called because of a diesel leak. The southbound lanes were opened and one patient (a 68-year-old woman) was in full cardiac arrest. One passenger (the woman) was dead on arrival after being extricated from her vehicle. At 12:28 a man riding a bicycle on a busy county road was hit by an automobile and suffered head injuries; the air ambulance was once again called. At 2:37 this afternoon a report came in of an airplane crash near the local airport. The plane did go down in a wooded area very close to several apartment complexes. The subsequent fire was put out, the pilot miraculously walked away. Some days the world seems to spin completely out of control.

Indeed it does: prayers for the world, and for you and all of you great people who look after those in need. God bless.
