Disaster Update: Tri-State Tornadoes

On my way through Henryville, Indiana I drove past several ambulances, fire trucks and other emergency vehicles all in a line. At the end of that line, was a hearse, likely transporting a victim of Friday's tornadoes. A parade of cars were following the hearse, and in this small town it looked as if everyone was there for the procession.

When I began this trip to Henryville, my mind was going over our relief efforts and what supplies are needed, but the sight of the hearse brought my thoughts back to people of the town. While we concentrate on our disaster relief work and all the things that need to be done, we need to remind ourselves to focus on the people themselves, the loved ones they've lost and the hardships they are facing. We must remember the importance of supporting those affected by the storms mentally and spiritually.
