I arrived here from Oregon over a week ago as a Red Cross volunteer to help provide disaster relief. I can honestly say I've never felt more welcomed anywhere. Even after all the devastation, people couldn't have been more kind to each other or to us. I'm so sorry this had to happen here, but I am also so uplifted by the acts of kindness I have seen here. I will never forget the destruction I've seen, but also the wonderful people of Tennessee for the rest of my life!

Yes, thank you so much!

I've been in this state for over six years and I concur. The people are very special.

But you are special, too. Thank you, again.

Default Hate to leave...

... but my real job is calling me home. I'd never been to Tennesse before, and I'm sorry I had to be here at such a difficult time, but even after all the tornadoes and flooding you have all been through, you have been some of the most gracious folks I have ever met. Take care and God bless you all!
