I knew a firefighter that worked the aftermath of the Grandview/Kansas City arson/bombing at the construction site. I was approximately 50 miles away and felt the kaboom when the dynamite went off!!! My first reaction was our fault line a smidge more southern burped it was that strong!!! Firefighters, police and military have my prayers and utmost admiration!!!!
