Joplin - 1 Year Later

It's hard to believe that it has been a whole year since neighboring Joplin, MO was hit by a devastating EF-5 tornado that claimed the lives of 161 people.  It has been busy around this area this week with the anniversary upon Joplin.

Here's a neat video showing some of the amazing stories since the storm.

This photo and video make me so proud of my Midwestern heritage!  Have a great weekend!


  1. What resilient folks. So inspirational to see what they have done for each other.

  2. I've always marvelled at the fact that a disaster either brings out the best in people or the worst. There's hardly ever any middle ground.

  3. Oh Joplin! I went to college here and graduated last May, the day before the tornado struck. This town will always hold a dear place in my heart. <3
