There's something about raising your baby somewhere that makes it feel like home.

West, TX is that place for us.

Please pray tonight. That the lost be found, the the injured be healed, and that the hurting families be comforted.

I can't tell you how wonderful a place West is, and was for us. A modern day Mayberry. A place where keys left in your front door are just that.. A simple oops.

We sold our first home, a little blue Czech bungalow just a couple of short months ago-- it's blocks from the blast area. I was stopped in my tracks to hear the news last night, to see houses I RECOGNIZED on fire, the little track I walked when I was 41weeks pregnant, now flooded with ambulances as a community-wide triage staging area.

We called our neighbors last night-most are safe (still trying to get in touch with some) but their hearts and windows are broken. So many more weren't as fortunate.

**update** it is believed one of our neighbors & long-time friend is deceased. He was a first-responder & volunteer firefighter.

  4. My, what a tragic experience. Glad to know that you and your family are alright. My prayers for the other victims and I hope that they could recover from the incident fast. Sometimes, you may wonder why it happened. But only God knows the reason why. It may be a blessing in disguise or just maybe it is bound to happen.

Sparking from a quotidian calamity, the film is confidently yet subtly probing its chain reactions about familial dysfunction, religion misemployment, moral integrity, marital coordination, parental education, nursing for senior citizens, etc. And the You Get A Girl A Fancy Hotel Room For The Night, You Will Not Move From This Spot, 7 Terrifying Anal Sex Stories, A Weird Little Sex Thing, 21 Girls On The Weirdest, I Stayed After Work One Night With My Hot, Here Is The Sexy Game That Brought My Boyfriend, My Boss Made The Mistake Of Sending Me, Fulfill A Very Controversial Fantasy and Supermarket Sex hidden truth has been incubating soundly and the sympathy is ample towards both sides and for myself the most appalling epiphany is the religious curse on the underclass mass, which ruthlessly turning the tables while the well-off citizen (for instance, the tutor) could blatantly testify an uncertain assertion under the oath of Quran, even shamelessly deny her cunning attempt to glean information by inducing a 4-year-older. Furthermore strikingly yet expectedly, the most severe collateral damage has been put upon the two children, the most innocent onlookers of the dispute, the final staring between the two girls are hauntingly disturbing, there palpable wounds which will never heal planting inside both two's memories.
