As I am in Joplin, Missouri, today, I wanted to be clear and specifically and explicitly pass along my sympathies and condolences to those affected by the recent deadly tornadoes in Joplin this past May – especially to those that lost loved ones.
Also, I viewed some of the devastation of your town. I can feel your pain. If I could do anything to help you in this plight or to help you avoid any such grief, I would. Let’s hope that the tornado researchers will progress the knowledge of tornadic storms to the point whereby no one will ever have to suffer from these storms to such an extent as the good people of Joplin, Missouri have suffered from this latest calamity. Let’s hope and pray we all gain strength from this catastrophic experience.
