Six Months After the Tornado

It has been six months since a tornado changed everyone’s life in Joplin.  This is also the week that we celebrate Thanksgiving.  So I have taken pictures of some of the things around Joplin for which I am thankful.

Thank you to all who worked on this community-based collaboration of high quality art work.  It is a beautiful reminder of the hopes of those who have been affected by the tornado.

I am thankful to all the volunteers who have helped our town.  I found this school group working on a cold November day cleaning up a lot.

Thank you Habitat for Humanity which built 10 homes in the area.

Thank you to all the people who helped.

Thank you Extreme Home Makeover which built 7 homes in the area. They are pretty cool!

Cunningham Park has been rebuilt!

I do have much for which I am thankful.
