Texas has had more than a fair share of violent petroleum and chemical industry incidents resulting in large scale damage and loss of life. The incident of yesterday is not the first. From a school explosions, refinery explosions, dockside explosions, and chemical industry explosions the state has paid a high price in contrast to the record found for these same industries in the North East and Atlantic states and California. These other geographical areas of the country have an equally heavy concentration of similiar industries.
Please pray for all those who are in one way or another affected by this horrible tragedy playing out in West, Texas.
