How Have Local Tragedies Affected Your Family?

When you write your story include how local tragedies affect your family or friends.

I didn't know anyone personally involved with the Reno Air Races Tragedy, but one of my daughters works close to where the Races are held.  Another daughter had a couple of friends who were there at the Races though fortunately were not hurt.  Many people are affected, if not first hand, through the people they know.  When the Amtrak wreck occurred a few months ago, some friends were driving behind the truck that crashed into the train.  Having a four wheel drive vehicle, they were able to help transport some of the victims from the crash site.

Although tragedies are hard to deal with, they do affect our lives.  We are who we are because of all of our experiences whether good or bad.  Recording how tragedies have affected us can be an important part of our story.

If you would like to express your condolences to victims of the Reno Air Races Tragedy you can do so at this site.
