On April 12, a series of tornadoes destroyed hundreds of homes across the US Southeast. My parents live in the path of one such tornado. Their house was destroyed - only part of the kitchen of their two- story, brick and hardwood home still stands. Every memory in that house, whether lived or kept in photos, is gone. Most of the furniture still hasn't been found, likely dumped in a field somewhere beyond reach. A lifetime of books, photo albums, keepsakes, clothes, blankets... everything we need but rarely think about is gone. My dad is a truck driver and wasn't home when the storm hit. My mom was on her way to visit my sister when the storm ripped their house from the ground. My parents are people who worked their entire lives to give their kids at a better shot than they were ever given. They couldn't even afford to buy their house until just a few years ago. Now it's gone and there's a lot of uncertainty about what insurance will pay for, if they pay for much at all. Please help us as they try to rebuild their lives and replace the most basic of necessities. They're good people who work hard and never ask to be rewarded for it. Let's help them out.
