When it comes to a catastrophe of this size, it is impossible to fathom specifics of what takes place. It is impossible to adequately convey the wave of sorrow through the use of words. It is challenging to do so in an adequate manner. In the interest of the families that have been impacted, and in particular for the children of Allister, I would like to respectfully request that the community join me in praying for them. Mitchell made the following observation: “In addition, I would like to request that the community surround the family with compassion and kindness, while also demonstrating respect for the families’ need for isolation.”
