The Joplin Tornado

If you haven't watched this video, please do watch (or more accurately, listen to) the full video to help you understand what the people of Joplin experienced a couple of days ago...

If that doesn't shake you to your core and put a chill in your bones - hearing those children scream in total fear, hearing that lady crying out to Jesus, hearing the emotional, mortality facing "I love yous" exchanged, knowing that this same terrifying scenario played out with many thousands of other people across the city - you're something considerably less than human.

This tornado was the largest killer among single tornadic events in almost a century. The loss of life is horrifying. For every life lost, many more were devastated.

If you're interested in helping these people, some information on and links for doing so can be found HERE.
