I live in Aumsville. I was home when the tornado hit. I live off of 4th street. My house wasnít damaged. I was extremely lucky. Most of us in my neighborhood just thought it was a thunder and lightning storm coming in. To our surprise, it was a tornado. The city is devastated; most people who live in this area have lived here most of their lives. For parents, it was extremely scary because we were unable to make contact with the schools to see if they were okay. It was the scariest and saddest day of my life.

Why is it it takes a major disaster to bring people together in civil cooperation.
