In June, I spent some time in Joplin, Missouri. The tornadoes had hit just a month before.
This is my mom’s hometown, and while my parents now live twenty miles away, Joplin is the biggest nearby town and the place to go for doctor’s appointments, shopping trips, and the like.
By the time we arrived, much had already been cleaned up.
