"It started just like any other, normal day.
We heard the tornado sirens, but we
didn't pay much attention to them since
they always go off in bad weather.
We have lived here since 1968 and had
experienced the drills repeatedly. This one
was eerily different."
- John Hunter
"The Lord is watching over all of us, and
He knew we needed this to come together
and that's what we had and did."
- Anita Stokes
"I saw so many people helping each
other and everyone's genuine concern for
complete strangers."
- Deanna Fanning
"Something just clicks. It clicks inside of
your heart. It's like you move unconsciously,
just by instinct that you need to help those
around you."
- David Willard
"I just take it one day at a time. I take
everything to God. Without my faith in
God, there is absolutely no way I would be
standing here today able to function."
- Pamela Jean Prater
"I have a new perspective on life now.
Things that I used to be afraid of, I'm not
afraid of anymore; and I can't explain it.
I've never been happier in my life, I've
never been more content."
- Leroy Wheeler
