My home is Branson, MO… I shop here, I perform here, and I live here. When tragedy hits close to home, it’s hard to comprehend.
Branson is a huge tourist town, and we have an attraction called “Ride the Ducks.” You board a boat/car, drive to the lake, then the boat cruises through Branson’s beautiful Table Rock Lake. Many tourists (and even locals) have enjoyed this experience, but two days ago (July 19th, 2018), a powerful storm unexpectedly hit… During this storm, one of the ducks on the lake capsized, killing 17 people and injuring many others. When I learned of this event, my heart broke. I hurt for all the victims and everyone involved, like family and friends. I am writing this post to ask my readers to please pray for everybody affected… My own prayers are going out. ❤️
Life is fragile and sometimes we take it for granted- sometimes we take our loved ones for granted! This horrible occurrence has reminded me to be grateful for what and who I still have… Hug your loved ones tight and let them know how much they mean to you.
