Telling the story of a traumatic event in one’s life is an excellent way to work through what the person experienced. Just the other night I saw a story on the local news and a doctor was being interviewed about how the tornado victims could cope with all of the emotions they have after the storm. His advice? Journaling. He said that writing down what you experienced is a good way to work through it. April 27th is a day none of us will ever forget. As I have traveled around Alabama I have heard countless stories and recorded many of them to be shared on this website. Stories have been told on Facebook and pictures are all over the internet documenting this historic event in the southeast.
The relief distribution center in Hamilton, AL is serving the people of Hackleburg, Shotsville, Shiloh, Pea Ridge, W. Hamilton, Fykes Crossing, Bexar, Hodges and Detroit. These are some photos that were taken on April 17th during our visit there to deliver relief supplies. The center is being run by the wonderful people of Reins of Life Youth Ranch after the Red Cross pulled out.
