Remember Joplin

Stay StrongOn May 22, 2011, an EF-5 tornado touched down in Joplin, Missouri (via @CNN) killing 161 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.

Thank you Taylor Kaspar, a Univ. of Wisconsin student, for creating this video highlighting the power of humanity’s natural ability to come together and form community during times of unhappiness:
