Joplin on my mind

I know I already did a post on Joplin, but I just can't stop thinking about this town that is now in shambles. Marc and I went yesterday to help out. I had the opportunity to put together packages of supplies and then deliver them to people.
I felt sick to my stomach most of the day. I mean I can't imagine having 3 kids and NOTHING left. That was the first place we went yesterday. When I say they lost everything, I mean you can't even tell there was a house or better yet a neighborhood. Here are some pics I took yesterday while driving around.

This goes on for 14 miles and a mile wide.

Please go help them if you can. They are amazing people and have such a good perspective. Most just feel blessed to be alive. There will be things to do for several years there.
Here is some video I tool while riding in the car yesterday.
