I’ll never forget the hollow look in that woman’s eyes as she uttered those words to me.
There I stood on the back platform of our twenty-four foot box truck full of bread products that we had transported the nearly 800 miles from Columbus, Ohio to the disaster area that used to be Joplin, Missouri.
As is my custom, I was loudly encouraging the crowd that was standing in line in the Food 4 Less parking lot from which a group of volunteers was staging a free give-a-way of a variety of everyday needs necessary to live. From diapers to hand cleaner, feminine products to plastic gas cans, toilet paper to toothpaste, America had responded to their countrymen in need of living-supportive services.
