Nashville is Hurting

Last weekend Nashville, Tennessee experienced possibly the worst natural disaster it's ever seen. My second hometown is sadly wrecked. 13+inches of rain in a 2 day period washed out roads, hundreds if not thousands of cars, friends of mine lost all they had or at least their basement. Many many people were stranded in their cars, homes, neighborhoods and away from their loved ones for days.

To see some photos of the devastation, this is the best website I've seen for photos that tell the story. What's not being said is that most people and businesses didn't have flood insurance. Because the word "flood" has never crossed their mind. It's just mind-blowing.

I've been putting off this post because I don't know if I can really do the subject justice. Suffice to say that Nashville is in need of serious help. Here are a couple of things you can do.

Thanks, Beth. Things are looking better here, for some. Others who lost it all are still really hurting. Thanks for spreading the awareness.

Oh hey thanks for the shout out! My fundraiser has gone really well - I've raised over $300 so far! I can't even look at photos of the Opryland hotel - it is so heartbreaking. :(
