It was like nothing I had ever seen before, the clouds seemed to be rolled up and they had this odd green color. It was a little bit frightening, and as neighbors watched, we knew it might be a good idea to take cover, but no one wanted to miss what might happen next. When it was over, I was assigned to go to the Evergreen Mobile Home Park. I had never seen such devastation, except on T.V. How could such a thing happen here? It had never happened before. Big trucks were on their sides. Tree trunks were twisted off like sticks of celery, and the mobile homes were in shreds. I was struck by the sea of pink before me. Insulation covered the wreckage. Homes were flattened. There were some pipes protruding, reminders of where people had lived. And then a vehicle arrived pulling a little flat trailer. As it was opened, I saw, for the very first time, body bags. My thoughts turned from the destroyed homes to the lives that would have to be rebuilt. As I made some calls yesterday, a person at Evergreen told me there would be no commemoration today, most just wanted to forget. I can respect that, but for others, we just wanted you to know we have not forgotten. Please add your thoughts, below.
