This past weekend, Nashville, middle Tennessee, and parts of Kentucky and Mississippi suffered catastrophic weather, especially flooding around Nashville. So far 27 people have been taken from us, and more bodies are being found, most trapped in their homes or cars by the suddenness of the flood. The fact that I talked to several people at work the day after the flood, who had no idea that such a devastating thing had happened, makes me angry at the media who sat on the story for days.
Here is a video of photos of Nashville and surroundings, which show just how bad it was, and how hard the cleanup will be. Most of my family lives in Tennessee, and I thank God that none of them were hurt by this. We need to remember the people who have lost their loved ones, and those who are helping out there. The folks in Nashville and surroundings are showing us true American spirit, we may get knocked down, but we get back up without (much) complaint, and get back to it. Nashville will come back even better than before, because of their spirit, and because of their faith, their belief that there is Power greater than them that helps when needed most.
