The wrath of mother nature~
The pictures and amateur videos shown on TV and the Internet are horrifying. Over 269 dead from a string of 137 tornadoes that cut a path of destruction through the South. The aftermath looks strikingly similar to the Tsunami that struck Japan in March. And the residents wandering the litter strewn streets of their decimated neighborhoods look just as dazed and in shock as our neighbors in Japan.
When I look at these scenes of utter destruction, I am overwhelmed. Entire neighborhoods gone -- family friends, and neighbors dead. How does one begin to pick up the pieces? I am sure most are still in shock, and unable to quite comprehend what has occurred.
Thousands have just experienced what maybe the most devastating loss of their lives. While we can re-build homes and neighborhoods, and buy new things, it is difficult to move through traumatic loss. If you have loved ones who have been impacted by the tornadoes, or if you have lost a loved one, please know that there are trained professionals who can help and traumatic loss programs in your community.
Lets keep all those impacted by the tornadoes in our prayers~
