I'm sure you've all heard the news about the tornado in Alabama. It always makes me sad to hear stories like these, but this one was a little more personal than normal. A girl who went to Jerusalem with me, Rachael, lives in Tuscaloosa with her husband. Although we were not close friends, I love her dearly because we shared those wonderful experiences. She is such a sweet, strong person and I always admired her.

This is a link to an interview she gave with CNN about her experience with the tornado. The photos you see are of their apartment. It's an amazing story, and I am so grateful they made it through safely.


  1. That is crazy. These storms make me really sad. I'm glad they are both okay.

  2. Oh this breaks my heart! I'm glad they are alright, but what a traumatic experience. Thanks for sharing, Allison.
