ABSTRACT
This article talks about the author's experience of a bad storm sweeping his family's crops away and leaving them empty-handed. A tornado came ripping the walls and the roof off their farm machinery garage. A friend came and saw what happened to their farmyard and called for help from their nearest neighbors. 45 people came and helped them restore the farmyard. A few days after, he realized that his family is not alone in the situation. Other families were there to help them and he was grateful for it.
