Mississippi Tornadoes 2011
These are photo's of a little town in Mississippi called Smithville. It had only 2800 people and a small little school that we used to play in football when I was in high school.This little town sits on the Ala border.This little town lost its school, bank, grocery store etc. and of course in a town that size there isn't another.
My heart breaks for the southeastern US right now . I know that to most of the rest of the country it was just a blip on the national news radar but to me it was personal.I have been to most of the places in MS and Ala it hit.I lived in two of the areas. My best friend lives in Hackle burg.(She received a lot of damage but she is safe).I know that the death of Ben Laden was important and who could forget the Royal Wedding but these people in these states have lost everything.I encourage all of you to keep them in your thoughts and prayers and keep their plight in the media (on facebook, twitter etc.).
My heart is also proud because as always the people of the south so their strength, sense of humor, kindness and humanity. It makes me so happy to see other areas of the south come to they're aid and not only with supplies but with manpower.
I just encourage all of you if you can to give to your charity of choice to help all those in these states that are affected as the need is great.
Some see a hopeless end, while others see an endless hope. ~Author Unknown
