The news of continuous tornadoes demolishing entire communities across 10 states is so heart-breaking. Some of these very same communities were hit last year in April, rebuilt their homes and businesses only to have another tornado take them out again. I learned many years ago at a very young age, don’t ask why? Yes, I know questions are good to ask and help us to understand the “what?” and “why?” of loss, tragedy, hardship. Asking why, won’t help the effected people rebuild their homes, their communities, their lives. They do not need to understand why the tornado happened to move forward with living moment by moment.
Instead, I ask myself; how can I help? What I can do today and everyday is to send all the people impacted by the tornadoes thoughts of courage, hope, perseverance, resilience. Never lose courage.
