I hope to see many of my friends in Tuscaloosa at the Alberta School of Performing Arts Thursday evening for this special event with author Kim Cross. This will be a night of healing stories. It will be uplifting, not a downer. Instead of a day of mourning, this is an acknowledgement of how far we have come, and the good things that have happened as a result of the bad.
Speakers include storm chaser John Oldhue, rescuer Adam Watley, DCH Disaster Coordinator Andrew Lee, student Kelli Arthur, and survivor Chelsea Thrash.
