On the Results of a Personal Tragedy: After the Flood

We have had floods in this area recently. I was personally affected ... for an afternoon ... when I couldn't get back to my office, or even home, when the roads were temporarily flooded. I have read the paper and watched the evening news and noted the many stories of flood victims whose lives were disrupted in a much more devasting way than I was, people whose possessions were all but ruined. Below is the last paragraph of a post by Cary Enoch Reinstein aka Enoch's Vision that tells the story of a flood he experienced and its consequence. Read the whole story. Click over to the sites below. All I can say is "wow!" -gw

Because of a personal tragedy, I acquired certain skills that enabled me to perform a service. These pages are examples of what I’ve done recently:

a faded and restored filmstrip, and

a website that presents a book of historical interest. Those web pages get 1000s of visitors.

Your blog page has been on my Wordpress blogroll ever since I started blogging last October. I appreciate the link to my article and Baha'i-inspired artwork.

It took me a long time to find and learn the bounty of service that came from a personal tragedy. Hopefully I'll learn faster if there's another one.
