There Are No Words

This is so not teaching related but I wanted to share with my blogging friends some of the devastation that hit our state over the last 9-10 hours. I have never seen anything like this in my life, and it has really hit home…both my aunt and a family friend lost  their homes today. But they are still here. Thank God. Keep Alabama in your thoughts and prayers.
