It's kinda ironic that my last post was titled Bring the outside in. It's not always a good thing when the outside comes in, like flooding in. This post should actually be titled KEEP THE OUTSIDE OUT.
Exhibit A- The Tennessee flooding
This is the street that my good friend Stephanie (SabbeSpot) grew up on and also where her Mom still lives. In this case the outside should have stayed out.
But it didn't.
It came all the way up to her peep hole in their door.
Which means her entire home was filled with nasty, bacteria infested water.
Imagine all of your things, I mean EVERYTHING, having to be thrown away because they are not salvageable.
And she is not the only one. This is what the whole street looks like.
But out of the disaster comes love. Do you know what the state of TN is known as? I didn't.
It's the volunteer state!
Out of all that nastiness comes such a beautiful sight... complete strangers coming together to help and clean up the mess and rebuild. Rebuild one wall, one floor, one life at a time.
So my fellow bloggers, lets help one wall, one floor and one home be rebuilt again. Go visit Stephanie's blog to see more pictures and to learn how you can help.
