I'd like to take a moment and talk about the fire right now raging in Colorado Springs. I grew up in one of the neighborhoods now currently on fire and it's hard to imagine the horror that the current residents are going through. My old house may already be gone, as well as my elementary and middle school, and I know that many of my firend's houses are also in the path of this monstrous fire.Plus, the Air Force Academy is within striking distance of the fires and has been partially evacuated.
This is a surreal moment for me and all of you who know what a great place Colorado Springs is, the beautiful forests and mountains, the foothills and communities. I'd like to just ask each of you for your prayers this morning on behalf of the people who live in this city that have been displaced and lost their homes and neighborhoods. There's not much else we can do other than pray for their safety.
