After reading the article in CBS news, my heart is heavy for the people of Joplin, MO, trying to cope with the natural disaster that hit their community.  The death toll in Missouri’s devastating tornado is climbing as they continue to search for survivors.  They are calling it the deadliest single U.S. twister since the year 1953.  Unfortunately, it hit the city’s hospital, a facility badly needed with more than 1150 people injured.  Here’s how you can help….
