Remember Joplin – Where They Rebuild 1-year Later

May 22, 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 represent the story, as I saw it, 7 months after the deadly tornado.

1 year ago today a town was torn apart. But like most humans, especially in America, they possess the strength to get up, put the pieces together, and rebuild.

I ask you to Remember Joplin for 2 reasons:

  1. Enjoy life–you might not be alive tomorrow
  2. Help others–there is always someone less fortunate than you
