Let me start off by saying how deeply saddened I am of the loss and devastation to my state of Alabama. We were luckily spared this time and only lost power for a day, which is nothing compared to the others who have lost everything! The stories and images that are shown on the TV are terrible. So many people have lost their lives and others are still missing. But in the midst of all of the images and stories, I am in awe of the strong faith and spirit of these victims. People are chipping in (even Charlie Sheen...not quite sure about that one) and pulling together to help rebuild these areas destroyed by last week's tornadoes. We don't rely on our government to pull us out and then complain how they didn't do enough for us. We pull ourselves up out of the rubble, dust ourselves off and look around to see who might need our help. Guess that's the way we do it in the south and I am proud to be an Alabamian!!
