what is going on here……is how good it is get back home ..for the lucky onesSeptember 7th, 2011 at 11:12 am by Todd Bynum under Photo/Video, Sports
First, I hope everyone is doing theri part to give donations, supplies and whatever is needed to help the fire victims all over Central Texas. I’ve been out in it for the past 3 days and I can tell you families are devastated and the fire has swept a path of distruction like I’ve never seen. The great thing is seeing the smiles on the faces of folks yesterday as they went back into Steiner Ranch. You could see tears of joy and lots of waving from folks passing me on their way back home. I can’t imagine the feeling of those who had no home to go back to. The most rewarding thing is how strong the folks who have lost everything are. We could all learn a lesson from the folks who are resolved to build back, to keep going, a lesson for all American’s during this economic time as well.
I haven’t had a chance to keep up with news on the Big 12 but there is plenty of blame to go around. I’d like to see the Big 12 be strong and go after good teams of their own but that’s unlikely to happen. Now Baylor want’s to throw a wrench into the whole deal and I’m not sure that’s necessary. The end is here for the Big 12 and maybe the commissioner shoud’ve been stronger and the schools involved not be driven by money but the strenght of the conference.
It’s all trivial when i’m watching TV and looking at folks who are going up to a piece of paper taped on the wall in Bastrop to see if they even have a home left. It seems like greed has taken over College football and the folks all over Central Texas need our help. It’s an emotional roller coaster for all of these folks and many high school football games are postponed due to the fires.
three salutes to the firefighters, the fighters and the folks helping them fight.
