The Arch in St. Louis

Crossing the Mississippi


Our trip started out in Joplin, MO the city the was hit by a massive tornado in May 2011. The experience of driving through the devastated areas was sobering. It appeared to me what many areas of Europe must have looked like after WWII. Thousands of people lost their homes and many of those have not been repaired or rebuilt. There is activity, but the people of Joplin still need help from trhe rest of the US. The story has disappeared from the news, but it shouldn't disappear from the conciousness of the nation. In this Christmas season, consider making a donation to help the people of Joplin recover. A list of organizations can be found at http://www.mo.gov/05222011joplintornadoes/donations/
