of the State of Kansas
Congratulations to all of you.
This is really about you and what you’ve done in a very difficult
tragedy. I recall coming down shortly after the event happened.
The houses - everything was destroyed. It was truly one of those
moments as I walked down the streets- a moment in time you can’t really
believe it happened.
Yet what I was seeing was people
coming together and helping each other, picking up debris, handing out
water, or helping in some way, or praying that nothing else would
happen, that no one would get hurt as they continued to work through
I just simply want to say that
you are a resilient community, you have chosen to overcome
adversity. Often when you have these sorts of trials it’s
difficult to understand God’s purpose but on the other hand you have
responded in such a way that’s it a tribute to everyone coming
together. My congratulations to all of and thank you for letting
us be a small part of it. This is really all about you and
what a community can do when it decides to instead of letting adversity
get you down - overcoming it. Congratulations and God Bless You
all. ---Congressman Jim Ryun
