May 22, 2011 Joplin Tornado

A path of destruction it left. It went through the town, Like a car fly's down the high way. Destroyed almost half the town. Home gone. Family dead. The High School destroyed. A time of devastation, On that dreadful Sunday night, On May 22, 2011. We are strong, And we rebuild. New schools. New homes. Pride building back up. Old friends and family we lost, Were never forgotten. We all remember very well, And now were ready to Rebuild, The town we grew up in, Joplin, Missouri. That day we'll never forget, May 22, 2011

Hello Samantha, you describe so well how this devastation ripped through all you know and knew but you show such resilience that it is truly inspirational. Good luck in all that you achieve ...and by your tone and attitude it will be a lot! ... Karen Deeks
