You may have heard about the recent tornadoes that ripped across the South. I have been fortunate that the violent storms haven’t hurt me or any of my family members, but I have coworkers, friends and classmates with relatives that are dead, injured or newly homeless. As I type this, nearly 250 people are confirmed dead in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee. Entire towns like Smithville, Tuscaloosa and Pleasant Grove have been devastated. If you can afford to, please donate your time or funds to the relief effort.
