Natural Disasters Can Strike Anyone

Natural Disasters Can Strike Anyone

 

By Elton Camp



Here in North Alabama, many are no longer alive

After an encounter with a tornado that’s rated EF-5

Killed were a second grade teacher and her mother

A handsome ten-year-old little boy was yet another



Grandparents died, grandchildren trying to protect

To parents of a one-year-old, tornado fury did direct

Those now dead were, at the time, in the wrong spot

It wasn’t a thing they did wrong or that they did not



Natural disasters strike both the bad and the good

Very often even those who did all that they could

Both alertness and following a tornado safety plan

In such a storm fails unless underground you ran



Well-built homes in this tornado were swept aside

Houses, possessions, jobs lost and so many died

Those of us who survived have a duty, though

Love and generosity for our neighbors to show



Future violent tornadoes can surely be expected

All of us should do what we can to be protected

That it may not be enough has been demonstrated

In this horrendous, true story that’s here related
