Sometimes a logo is more than just a representation of a school, team or organization. Sometimes, a logo is representation of a state’s unity in times of trouble, times of need and times when disaster strikes.
Late Monday night, a tornado ravaged through the City of Nashville, Tennessee, leaving many citizens without a single thing.
Homes were lost, people were left in the rubble, and at last check, 24 innocent people lost their lives.
Families lost loved ones, brothers lost brothers, sisters lost brothers, wives lost husbands, husbands lost wives, parents lost kids, kids lost parents.
Before the University of Tennessee’s Tuesday night baseball game against Longwood University in Knoxville, the Volunteers field crew painted “#Pray4Nash” on the back of the mound.
They didn’t do it because they felt obliged to do it, they did it because they too, are hurting with the City of Nashville, as is the rest of the state of Tennessee and the nation.
You see, when you sit back and think about it, we’re all just standing in a long line waiting on God to call our name.
We never know when or where that will be, don’t hesitate to tell your loved ones that you love them, because it could be the last chance you ever get to do so.
My heart goes out to each and every one of the families effected by Monday night’s storm.
To the families that were effected by the storm, the ones left with nothing, the ones that survived but haven’t wrapped their heads around the events that took place just 24 hours ago, know that you are not alone, you will make it, God wouldn’t put you in this position if He didn’t think you were strong enough to withstand it.
