As I am sure most of you know, deadly and devastating tornadoes hit the Southeast last week. The images of the destruction are haunting. People lost everything. Houses were swept away, leaving only splinters behind. Families were left with nothing but the clothes on their backs; their lives in complete despair.
Living in Alabama, to see the tornado happening live on TV was completely horrifying. I feel extremely lucky to have survived with my home and my family unharmed. My heart breaks for those who were not as fortunate. American Red Cross is taking donations through their website. Please give.
