Many of you have no doubt seen news coverage of the tornado that destroyed Joplin, MO last night. Joplin is about 2 hours south of Kansas City, MO and about an hour from where I grew up. My niece lives in Joplin and her home was completely destroyed last night & they lost everything, but she is okay ... just really shaken up. There are thousands of families just like her there, please keep them in your thoughts & prayers.
