Tuscaloosa Tornado – Smarter Every Day 7
I thought I would upload some footage to let you know what it was like just after the Tornado hit. We called it the “zombie apocalypse”. I had many very very interesting experiences during this time. All of the 3 cities I have lived in over the last 10 years were affected in a major way. My immediate and extended family were spared, experiencing only inconvenience. The question is often asked, “why would a good God allow such things to happen?” As a Christian, the honest answer is “I don’t know”. I can however, report on how it changed us. We met and became very close to very many people we otherwise wouldn’t have known. We were knocked off our high horse and forced to accept the generosity of others in thankful humility. I feel like this disaster has made me, personally a different person, (and one might argue for the better).
To say “God didn’t allow this” is a cop-out. He’s either all knowing and all powerful, or he isn’t. I happen to personally believe he is both, and every life affected was changed in a very specific way. I, like many others, began to focus on things other than myself and my own personal desires. I began to try more earnestly to understand Jesus’s teachings about how I’m to interact with others.
We feel really blessed to still have Briley after this. Feel free to ask me any questions. This is probably the only video about the tornado that I’ll describe my beliefs on. You will now return to your normally scheduled “Smarter Every Day”.
