There has been much devastation to Alabama and throughout the south in the past couple of days. I feel so fortunate to have not had any damage, nor did my parents at their home. There is much destruction all around us. I am not at school today due to no electricity there. As of now, there are 162 confirmed deaths in AL. with many others missing. I have just watched our local midday news. At one point they were so overcome with emotion, they had to go to commercial. Please pray for all of those who have suffered in so many ways from this. Here is a link to a local news network and to the Birmingham News where you can view some of the damage here. Thank you for all of the thoughts and prayers.
