As news flashed across television screens showing the killer tornadoes in Kentucky, my heart went out to our friends who live deep in the hollows of Kentucky. The images were scary in their own right, with tornadoes destroying towns like they were made of paper mache’ and lifting homes and vehicles off the ground like toys.
My heart went out to the people of Kentucky who we have come to love. Familiar faces went through my mind and thinking of the already bad living conditions that were made worse I became extremely concerned. and I was extremely concerned.
I made a phone call to Gino Montrone, a past organizer of the Kentucky Care Project, to find out what we could do to help, but by the grace of God, our friends , located in the central portion of the state , were left untouched.
For those of you who called with concern for those in Appalachia, thank you, and for the families who were not spared, our hearts go out to you.
