Hope for Tuscaloosa

This has been a sad week for Alabama.  We have grown accustomed to spring storms and the tornadoes that come with them, but no one could have been prepared for the death and devastation that hit our state on Wednesday.

I have been especially pained by the storm that hit Tuscaloosa.  Ben, David, and Jackie all lived there while they were in college and three of Daryl's nieces are in school there now.  The nieces were in a bathtub together when the worst of the wind was less than a mile from them.  We think that the house Jackie lived in for two years has been destroyed.

This video is a compilation of pictures from Facebook.  It shows the terrible devastation, but finishes with hope for Tuscaloosa.  And there is hope.
