Hope Collapses


Last night we made a delivery to the base of the bridge that collapsed in Minneapolis.  We brought the Navy divers a mobile command center to help them coordinate their recovery efforts on site.

The Navy Master Chief in charge allowed me to take a few pictures and as usual, the events that we usually only see on TV are so different when seen in person. It has such incredible impact when you see something like this up close.

There are still several people missing and it looks as if finding them alive is no longer a possibility, as it's no longer a search effort, but a recovery.  Let's remember to keep these people and their families in our thoughts and prayers.
