Yard # 1:
As we continued motoring down the road, we came to the town of Greensburg, KS. On May 4, 2007, an EF5 tornado destroyed 95% of the town and killed 11 people. Greensburg is rebuilding as a "green" town. As we drove through town, everywhere we looked there were signs of construction, which equates to progress in the rebuilding effort.
The contrast in these two towns made me think:
- It just goes to show, it can be "fun & games" in one location, while it is "life & death" in another location not far away.
- Practice tolerance. (You don't have to accept, but peacefully tolerate).
- Support others through their tragedies.
- Enjoy life every day.
Thanks, Kansas, for providing an interesting drive.
