My dear sweet friend,
Many of you know and most of you don't know that
Nashville was hit hard last weekend with up to 20" of
rain. It resulted in terrible flooding not just here but state
wide. We have been declared a disaster area however we
didn't make the news in most places and that is a puzzle
to us. Thousands of families lost everything. Not many
people have flood insurance because we don't flood here.
The last time we had anything was in "75 and 79 and that
was mostly out by the river where Opryland
Hotel is today. Then it was the Opryland theme park.
I thought it was very interesting that the national news
didn't cover this at all. We didn't have any service so I am
going on what others have said. It is so tragic.
Salvation Army and Red Cross are the two major
groups that are taking donations. There is a christian school
alled Lighthouse Christian that really suffered .
Thank you for passing along the information. All of our help
so far has come from our fellow citizens and they have been
awesome. I feel so bad that I only have one arm to give but I
will go to a friends tomorrow who was wiped
out and do what I can.
Thank you Marydon, you are always there wanting to help
and make a difference.
**(excerpt) Lighthouse Christian School on Blue Hole Road in
Antioch lost 8 of 18 buildings.
My son’s school was badly damaged in this weekend’s flood.
You may have seen a building floating down the 24. That was
from his school. See the footage on Utube by clicking on the link below.
