sweet home alabamaPosted: May 7, 2011
i’ve been mia for the past few weeks! tons has happened- good, bad, and tragic. i’ll recap my life changes later, but first i want to touch on the horrendous tornadoes that destroyed so much of the south on april 27. much of my home town of arab, alabama- pictured above- was annihilated, including the community where i grew up. somehow my childhood home was spared, as well as my mom who was holed up in the basement the whole day. i haven’t seen the damage in person yet- in arab or my college town of tuscaloosa- but i know the pain of destruction that everyone is feeling.
any help you can provide to those who have lost everything would be appreciated. if you’d like to give to my hometown of arab directly, visit www.arabtwisters.com.
here’s another option. the people who designed the t-shirts after the nashville flood last year are back again with designs that profit the tornado victims. i’ve already placed my order. please consider doing the same in support of those who lost everything.
