Storms silenced the south yesterday and are hitting me today. I am in awe of the devastion that Mother Nature leashed on so many again. Makes my issues seem mundane and idiotic. I have family in Alabama, my brother I haven’t talked with in over 10 years, his wife, and his four children; are they okay? I don’t know. I can’t imagine anyone is okay in all of the states that were ripped open from these storms. It’s called a National Disaster and they are in major need of help. Last I heard over 600 people have been hospitalized in Alabama alone and unfortunately over 200 people have lost their lives. Was it painful? Or were they trapped? Were they warned? Or were they shocked to see over 130 tornadoes touch down around them?
I hear your cries, I know you hurt. Help is coming, hold on just a little while longer. I hold all of your hearts, souls, and thoughts in my own heart today.
I hear you,
Update: deaths are now at 247
Update: death toll now at 266
