Child Hurt, 30 Homes & Business Damaged

Original article can be found Here

Today's article is something pretty personal to me, and isn't very political in nature.  Yesterday two tornadoes ripped through Jacksonville, NC and onto the base housing at Camp Lejeune, which is where I live.  30 homes were destroyed, including the house of my close friend who is currently deployed to Afghanistan.  His wife and infant son happened to be staying the night at a friends house and weren't harmed, but their house was demolished, including all of their possessions.  Thoughts and prayers would be appreciated.

  11. Destruction and death/injuries always are terrible to hear about, mother nature is so destructive.
