I shot the photo while searching for survivors and to this day cannot look at this photo without choking up. Devastation as far as one can see, yet an American flag waves proudly over it all. HOPE
OK, NOW I've read the book. This is a collection of essays, poems and pictures from mostly middle school students who have been impacted by the Joplin tornado. As a chaser, we often see the immediate aftermath, but not the long term impacts of tornadoes, so the promise of that perspective is what drew me to this book. I wasn't disappointed. The writing is what you would expect from most middle school aged kids and the stories told in that young voice are very touching.
The book is a record of the history of the F-5 tornado that wrecked havoc and destruction on our community. The book contains many essays and poems by our young people. It reflects the horror of the tornado and the devastation hailed upon lives and property. But more importantly the feelings and emotions expressed through the children and their teacher reflects the same feelings and emotions the entire community felt. They expressed the initial shock of the loss, the healing, and the moving forward with the hope. I call it the hurt, the horror, and the hope. After the initial hurt and horror we have moved forward with hope. So thankful that our children have taken the time to remind us that we have survived and have much to be thankful for.
Thanks again. And yes I did download this from Amazon and read it last week.
