People in Beirut are trying to pick up pieces of their lives after a devastating explosion rocked their city.
Look at this shocking video of a beautiful woman’s wedding photoshoot being interrupted by the blast …
What makes this video so frightening is that it isn’t a movie. It’s real life …
It’s difficult for a lot of us to imagine our lives being impacted by this magnitude of destruction.
Unfortunately for the people in Beirut, it IS real life …
Many of them are confused and terrified as they frantically search for family members, survivors … and answers.
The popular waterfront neighborhood near the explosion site — which was normally full of restaurants, nightclubs, and people — was basically flattened.
The death toll continues to rise … with at least 135 confirmed dead.
Rescue workers struggle as they attempt to treat thousands of injured people … and electricity is out in most of the city, limiting what can be done at night.
Anger is rising among the people who are demanding answers for why this catastrophe — which has changed or ended many lives — was allowed to happen.
Lebanese officials are blaming the explosion on thousands of tons of ammonium nitrate that arrived on a Russian-owned cargo ship more than six years ago.
The country has entered a state of emergency which gives security forces authority to impose house arrest on anyone involved with the storage of ammonium nitrate at the port as investigations continue.
It will probably take some time to get real answers but we as a community want to do what we can to help alleviate as much of the suffering as we can.
