Monday night fire stuck a barn near Hayward, MN, totally destroying it, and killing the 50 goats inside. When firefighters arrived, the barn was engulfed in flames and there was no hope of doing much more than trying to control the fire.

The sheriff’s office says the barn was fully engulfed when deputies and the Hayward Fire Department arrived. The barn was a total loss. A livestock trailer loaded with hay and about 80 bales of hay in the barn were also lost in the fire. Keep reading HERE.

Well, on KIMT, the farmer, Dawn Carlson said something that really struck home with me. It's something we see and hear a lot, but every time it amazes me. Not because we seem to forget the lesson so quickly, but because people, in the midst of turmoil and destruction can find a silver lining.

She said neighbors got in touch saying,

"Hey, if you need I'll give you this goat, if you need a place to farm. If you need feed if you need hay. All the bad things that are happening in the world this is proof that humanity is still good and that God is still watching over us." (source)

That says it all, doesn't it? We're good inside.
