As I sit here in my office today and reflect on what has happened over the last week or so and what needs to happen over the next several months and even year, I realize how lucky I am that my family and I moved to Middle TN. The way that everyone has banded together to help perfect strangers is just amazing. For the people of Middle Tennessee to overcome the adversities that have been placed in front of them is nothing less than awe inspiring and makes me proud to live in an area with people that are truly an inspiration!
I have spoken with many friends across the county and most of them had not heard anything about the flooding until the Tuesday or Wednesday after the flooding occurred. I can only surmise that because we were able to keep crime at a minimum the national news services did not care about Tennessee. Crime sells, people helping people does not – which is a sad commentary on our society and major news outlets!
I feel we are truly blessed for the people that live in our communities as these are some of the best people on earth and I for one am glad that I am here – even with the floods and tornados this is still one of the best places on earth!
Thank you Middle Tennessee – you deserve far more recognition than you have received for all of the great things you have accomplished during this trying time.
