It is heart breaking to drive through the neighborhoods that were hit hardest from the tornado and so sobering to realize that it was so close - it wasn't in the next town over and it wasn't on the other side of town, it was BLOCKS away. We have so much to be thankful for!!
We've had a chance to drive around in those neighborhoods and while I did not feel comfortable taking pictures as they were going through all that was left of their personal possessions, you can see more pictures here.
As we were driving I was thankful that it was only their personal belongings that they are going through and not a search for loved ones. But, still I whisper a prayer for these neighbors, our neighbors, that they would find hope even in this.
