The Shadow of Death

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me. (Psalm 23:1-4)
Today has been a sad day for campaign workers and watchers in Iowa.  This morning a van carrying three volunteers and a field director for the Carson campaign hit a patch of ice, flipped on its side, and was hit by another vehicle. 25-year-old volunteer Braden Joplin was killed.  It's heartbreaking to hear of another politically-active young person being so suddenly taken away. May we each live our lives passionately, striving for what we believe till our last breaths.  

Please join in praying for comfort for those left behind, and for safety for campaign workers as we near the Iowa caucus.
