Day 1 – Arrived in Joplin and ended up parking near the hospital. The picture I included does not come close to showing the true magnitude of the devastation. Seeing the hospital torn to shreds made me immediately realize why I wanted to help, I want to make a positive difference in others lives! Volunteerism is one way that I can make a difference so here I am on a wonderful path and I can’t wait!!!
