Joplin on my mind
It’s the deadliest tornado in Missouri history. I wish torandos, like hurricanes, had names. Like, Katrina or JerkFace.
This thing was bad, but what is so amazing to see in Kansas City (and in St. Louis, I suspect) is the heartwarming spirit of giving that goes on when our communities rally together after a thing like this.
