Callie's Tale

Thank You For Your Concern

You may have heard on the national news that a bridge in our neighborhood (35W in Minneapolis) collapsed this week, killing at least 5 people, (recovery is still underway as some folks are still missing) and injuring approximately 100. My Dad usually drives over that bridge twice a day. He's a carpenter and goes to different jobsites. Luckily he was working in St. Paul this week and did not have to go over that bridge. His guardian angel was looking out for him. There was one person on the bridge that Mom knows. He was injured but he's home now and going to be okay. He was very lucky.

We want to thank everyone who sent their good wishes our way. Thank you for the rosette and kind thoughts from an unknown caring friend. It will take the city awhile to recover and for everyone to feel safe on the bridges again. One good thing that came out of this is that the Governor is going to call a special session and see what can be done about finding the money to repair these old bridges. Dad thinks the money could be diverted from other funds without adding more tax. Maybe from the light rail system. But we'll have to wait and see what the politicans do.

Thank you for all your prayers for the families and loved ones who have someone they lost or have someone who is injured.

Callie
