My heart hurts for all of the people in Joplin. It hurts for those who have lost everything they have. For those who have lost almost everything they have. For those who lost their lives. For those who are mourning the loss of those lives. And for so, so much more.
I am not from Joplin but I know people who are, I know people who live close to Joplin. And I know people who have family & friends in Joplin. From the moment I heard about the tornado and all that ensued my soul searched for ways I could help.
