cory.finley J O P L I N -- 2011

The complete and utter devastation still sticks me in the heart.
That little closet in the middle of the picture was all that was left standing for a few hundred feet. It just so happens that someone took shelter in that closet.

calebhaakenson Almost 4 years ago I went with Sunnydale to Joplin for a week to rebuild this man's home after the huge tornado. Since we were magabooking in Joplin Kolby n I got to go back and see him again after 4 years! He Remembered our help and he still has the flag that each of us who helped rebuild his house signed! #joplintornado #joplinstrong 1mon

Four years ago I walked in my mothers room and saw her on her knees bawling in front of a loud television set. The news showed images of her hometown completely ruined. Unable to get through the phone lines to contact our family, we were left feeling helpless. But in the end, we were lucky in comparison to others. Everyone in my family survived the Joplin tornado... As for their houses and cars, not so much. As the memories of the old city fade, a new and better one is growing in its place.

tmawoods I love the Spirit Tree. It reminds me of all the growth and strength of one community. Having been gone for three of the last four years, I've primarily been able to watch Joplin rebuild from the outside. It's been amazing to watch the community come together strong, not only in the first year, but in recent years as well. #hopeforjoplin #joplintornado #fouryears #joplin 3mon

derrickforsythe Hard to believe it's been four years ago today since the tornado struck Joplin and sent us into action. I will never forget sitting at the fire station that night with Scott Weir, listening to Joplin FD calls of distress. We grew so much from that experience and gained some amazing friends. It's fascinating how the tragedies in life can bring so much good over the long term. There are a lot of amazing people out there, like "Huge Guy," "Old Guy," and the "Chicks from Kirksville." And can't forget Christian Wenzel putting on the mascot head and giving out free hugs. #goodtimes #godswork #joplintornado 3mon
