It is amazing how what someone else goes through can bring back so many feelings. The tornado that hit in Oklahoma did just that. But not only that. The images of children being pulled out of their school hit home even more that what was done that day here in Henryville, was the right decision made. Send the students home, even if the sirens were going off in town.
Please, if you want to go and help, go. They will find something for you to do. If you want to donate money, the Red Cross is a great organization, but money or gift cards to specific people or to local churches will get help directly and quicker to people in need. Do NOT send clothes at this time, but find a church or other organization and call ahead for what they may need.
Finally, pray. I don't know, or really care, if you are a religious person or not, but it can't hurt to continually pray for these people...all of them. Survivors, families, and first responders will be dealing with as much psychological stuff as well as physical problems.
Lord help us all as we deal/help with all of these things that keep occurring.
