Joplin spirit

This picture for me captures the spirit of Joplin. It's a boat IN A TREE! It shows the amazing power of the storm, to pick up a boat and securely wrap it around a tree. But the signs on and below it show the miracle of the human spirit (the phrase on our volunteer bracelets), to pick up and rebuild with courage and even a little humor.
The boat is for sale if you're interested. I'm sure you could get a great deal! And guided fishing trips - in the sky?! And inquire within - within the car?! I love these! (Click to enlarge)
In this awful storm, lives were lost, plus homes, businesses, jobs, and property, but people are recovering and rebuilding, and yes, even laughing.
