On April 27, 2011 a devastating tornado swept through Tuscaloosa, AL. On April 28th the debris from the storm could be seen strewn across lots, yards, and fields 60 miles away. As my wife and I walked our morning walk the day after the storm, we retrieved a handful of personal documents from gutters, bushes and yards. We pulled out torn fragments of...
