Yesterday afternoon there was a school bus crash in my hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee that killed 5 elementary school students and injured many more. The crash was a horrible tragedy that has brought a community together to help these kids and to comfort those who were lost. The driver of the bus has been charged in this crash.
Chattanooga has seen its share of heartache over the past couple of years but we rally together when times are tough.
I work for a blood bank that services the hospital where these kids were taken. The outpouring people willing to donate their time and most importantly their blood has been overwhelming.
Today is going to be a very busy day for me as we get donors in and make connections with those who still want to help. Everyday is a challenge and this one is no exception.
