In late May, a massive tornado tore through Joplin destroying 25% of the city.

You can see some of the destruction in this photo.

Repair manuals are important after a tornado! Notice the damage in the background.

  2. Dear Mrs Hembree,

    This is such a wonderful idea once again how! wonderful are all of the above photos. 🙂

    I do love the Praying Hands photo graph. I would love to know more why this is a Memorial for and why is it called the Praying Hands.

    The girls sure have been to some wonderful places and reading a great selection of books too.

    Well done girls!
    Keep reading and can’t wait to see more photos.

    From your pal down under,
    AA. 🙂

    • Dear AA,

      Yes, I agree with you! The photos the students are sending are spectacular! I was moved by the photo with the remnants of the tornado in Joplin. It only happened a couple of months ago and hundreds of people were affected by the damage.

      I have never been to the memorial, but I did find their website. I thought you might want to read about it.

      I have more photos to publish next week, so stay tuned!
      Thanks for your support!
      Mrs. Hembree

  3. @ Mrs Hembree,

    From a very cold day down under,

  4. Dear Mrs Hembree,

    Once again great photos of the girls reading.

    I found their photos very interesting becasue of all the different places they have been to and reading.

    I felt very upset when I saw the girls were reading in Joplin where the tornado hit. I thought of all the people who lost their homes and loved ones.

    Looking forward to the nexted lot of photos.

    From your pal,

    • Dear BB,
      When I first saw the photos with the damage in the background, I didn’t understand. Then I remembered about the tornado that hit Joplin.

      I think it’s admirable that you have such compassion for people so far from you!

      Enjoy your week!
      Mrs. Hembree
