|Post Hurricane Irene, Labor Day weekend 2011.|
Well, this is what it looked like on Sept. 8:
|Hurricane Lee, 2011|
It rose to new heights and flooded many parts of Northeastern Pennsylvania, including nearby West Pittston and Duryea, and Bloomsburg, where hubby and I attend the wonderful fair every year. Many people lost their belongings, and their homes were severely damaged. I even saw a video of a cottage floating downstream in Wyoming County, bobbing along until it smashed into a bridge. The historic Dietrich Theater is closed until further notice. They had planned their fall film festival for next week.
In the midst of all this, we are remembering those lost on September 11, 2001. Like the day JFK was shot, many of us know exactly where we were when the planes hit the Twin Towers. I know we are all thinking of those who suffered terrible losses that day. Please take this opportunity to pray for world peace, and peace in our country.
Here are some ways to promote peace, or help in a small way if you can:
- Katherine Dunn at Apifera Farm introduces Healing Creatures.
- The Wyoming Valley chapter of The American Red Cross is seeking donations to help those affected by the flood.
- I Am Enough may help you bring peace to yourself.
