This has been a rough week for many around the United States.  With the bombings in Boston and the fertilizer plant explosion in West, the week has been full of sadness, frustrations and questions.  I try to concentrate on the things I’m grateful for in moments such as these.

One thing I’m grateful for is that I can help West, in a very small way, without getting in their way as they clean up and continue to hunt for survivors and victims.  If you would like to do the same, you can check out this news website for ideas, or you can send a check to the Point West Bank at 200 West Oak Street, West, TX 76691.  Make your check payable to Victims of West Explosion.  I am hoping that this money will be used directly by the victims in any way the victim or town sees fit and there will be no middle man to take a percentage out.

I’m sure there are places to donate to help Boston also.  Unfortunately, I don’t have any of that information.  Please be sure to check out whatever charity you do donate to.  I’m always shocked at how tragedy brings out the worst in people and so many scams start.

Peace by with you.
