Remember Joplin – Where Santa Claus enters through the living room wall

May 16, 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.

I created this series of posts to spread 2 messages:

  1. No matter how bad your day is, it probably isn’t as bad as the residents of these homes. Cheer up.
  2. Planet Earth is stronger than humanity, treat it with respect.

If you keep treating the earth like your personal garbage can, soon you won’t have a chimney for Santa to crawl through either. Remember, reduce reuse recycle, and…

Remember Joplin.
