Still Alive and Prouder Then Ever of MPLS

Why didn't you see people on the bridge by the time the news got there? Because the drivers who were ok, the by standers, everyday people helped each other off the bridge and to safety.

There was just something in the air here...and no I am not talking about the air on CNN that made you proud. The people the rescue workers the cooperation the dignity.

It was like this huge reassurance that maybe we are going to make it as a society. Sorry maybe now I am just talking smack it has been a long night in the city of Minneapolis.

My heart goes out to those people who were not able to make it to safety.

Yeah...thank you very much for emailing me back. I didn't know how close you were to it, and for some reason knew you drove over it...so I'm happy you are safe...

I immediately thought of you and hoped you were o.k... I am relieved to find that that is the case.

Your city must still be in shock, but I am glad to hear everyone pulled together and shined in the moment of crisis.

With hope,

Tamar

Brian, I bet you could significantly expand your circle of friends by volunteering time aiding people who have been affected by this tragedy. Helping others really takes the focus off one's own problems.

Thanks for the email back! I was worried about everyone! I'm glad you were safe. Damn I got to work and realized I had a picture of that bridge on my board (on a post card).

I'm glad my hometowm showed the true meaning of "Minnesota-nice".
