joplin: before & after

…because we’re one country, and when one part of the country gets affected, whether it’s a tornado in Joplin or a hurricane that affects the Eastern Seaboard, then we come together as one country and we make sure that everybody gets the help that they need. President Obama while touring NJ 9/4.

found it interesting yesterday that POTUS mentioned Joplin. Good to have it mentioned albeit briefly.  In our fast-paced media culture the destruction on May 22nd seems all so long ago, yet the need remains great as that area moves slowly in to a rebuilding mode.
