With the healthcare debate in full force after Thursday’s Supreme Court decision, one city in particular has been on the minds of Americans: Washington, D.C. Yet there is another city that has been in headlines everywhere, a city that reminds us of our mortality and transience: Colorado Springs.
Wildfires have been sweeping the area, covering 16,750 acres, destroying 347 homes, and evacuating more than 32,000 people. For this reason, the Christian Post has asked its readers an important question: “If you had only a few minutes to gather up a few select treasures of your life before fleeing a raging inferno, what would you take -- and what would you leave behind?”
Perhaps cliched and maybe trite, this dreaded question is something no one wants to ever be asked. Unfortunately, however, it is a question many Colorado residents had to answer when they had only minutes to evacuate their house and gather their most precious and sincere belongings.
With that in mind, I ask you, BreakPoint readers: What three items would you take, knowing that your house would soon be in a “raging inferno”? Let us know in the comment section below.
