The Cul-de-Sac explosion

I sat in the office earlier this week working on an article minutes after the Cul-de-Sac explosion –we (my colleagues) had all felt it and the news rocked us to the core as it did so many others. And as I sat there working, trying to wrap up my work for the day, I heard a chilling scream and seconds after, a crash.

I ran out of the office and my colleague and I looked at each other somewhat puzzled as to what had happened. But when I heard the scream, I knew. I anticipated the crash and when I heard the sound I grew cold. I had seen many accidents before but I had never heard the actual crash and the chilling scream that came before it. I was terrified and the effect I believe was worse as the Cul-de-Sac explosion had taken place moments earlier. And I winced inwardly, hoping that God would have mercy on my soul; we live in perilous times.

The accident, if I predict correctly, would not take any lives but it left bad scars—emotionally and physically.

And again, I plead with drivers to proceed with caution when driving. It seems like our drivers are always in a terrible hurry and sometimes such haste leads to an unfortunate demise which affects the lives of many.

And I can’t assume that the individual who was hurt in the described accident was speeding as I do not know what transpired, however, I am using this situation to warn others.

We must be careful people; the road, (despite what some of us think), is not ours—drive carefully.

And before I end, I would just like to urge us to pray for the families and (living) persons affected by the Cul-de-Sac explosion—it is rather unfortunate that this tragedy has happened.

I urge us to pray for our country as well. We have gone through many ordeals and sometimes it seems like the situation will not get better. But pray without ceasing people and never for a second, doubt the greatness of our Heavenly Father.

Have a good weekend all.

Sincerely, always,
Rae A.
