I cannot begin to express the horror and sadness that has gripped me this evening. As far as I know, all of my family and friends are safe. However, many people lost their lives to a devastating tornado in Central Arkansas. According to reports, the tornado was 1/2 a mile wide and hit the towns of Mayflower and Violnia, Arkansas. Someone took video of the damage and posted it on Facebook. It hit drivers who were on the Interstate at the time. I’m certain the sound of children screaming while trapped in vehicles will be stuck in my head for some time to come. (I won’t post that video. Suffice it to say, I cried and it looks like a war zone.)
If you do one thing tonight, any one thing, I ask you hug a loved one and make sure they know how much you love them. It only takes a fraction of a second to change lives forever.
