    Incredible devastation. You have to see it to understand it fully.

    I have lived in Tuscaloosa all my life. Ten years ago a tornado hit in the area where I live off 69 South, but that one does not compare to the mass devastation of this one. Places that have been here since my childhood days are gone. Tuscaloosa will never look the same in these areas. I work at the hospital here and was off sick the day the tornado hit. If the tornado would have hit the hospital it would have been devastating. Thanks to all the people from all over that have come to our great state of Alabama to help out. You just don’t know how much these means to the people of Tuscaloosa and the other areas of the state. God Bless each and every one of you. Thanks to President OBama for coming to our city and also a big thanks to Charlie Sheen also. Please continue to keep our great state in your prayers. Alabama the Beautiful will be Alabama the Beautiful again soon, thanks to all the volunteers.
