Remember Joplin – Where Volunteers Are Born

April 25, 2012

On May 22, 2011, an EF-5 tornado touched down in Joplin, Missouri killing 170 people and destroying 8,000 businesses and homes (including the high school and hospital).  In December I visited the scene of Mother Nature’s fury where humanity can use more attention. This series of posts (pictures & video) represent the story, as I saw it, 7 months after the deadly tornado.

After disaster strikes, there is rarely a more reliable moment when the best side of humanity is exposed. You can count on people, regardless of background, to step forward and lend a helping hand. Thank you to anyone who has volunteered recently. If you haven’t, maybe it’s time to start.

Remember Joplin

Humanity will survive
