My Minnesota connection has come out full-force this week.
The next day, the I-35 bridge collapsed into the Mississippi River.
I can’t believe it. I have so many friends and family that still live in the Cities (it was never Minneapolis or St. Paul, just The Cities). We’ve been on the phone a lot getting the latest news, and trying to stay connected. It’s hard to be so far away when tragedy strikes at home. Bridges are frightening to many people in the best of circumstances, so I can’t imagine the terror everyone felt having a major freeway drop out from under them.
My heart is in Minnesota – with friends and families of the victims, and everyone who experienced the horror first-hand.
