A Day of Social Media Silence

Today I am having a day of Social Media Silence.....

Today I am thinking of our American friends who have been affected by the deadliest single U.S. tornado since 1953.


I am having a day of social media silence to honour the victims, families and friends who have been affected by the disastrous Joplin Tornadoes.

  1. I love this!

    I am in New York, I have a wonderful friend in Missouri and I am just so very grateful that she is okay. I must say, it's disgusting that our President didn't act on this and visit the devastated areas the first day. Instead, a week goes by before he shows his face. This is a tear in America's heart. Praying for the people of Joplin.

  4. My dear friend, you are always so thoughtful of other peoples' pain and suffering. What terrible devastation there was, and your photos really show just how bad things were for all those poor people. Prayers and thoughts are with them. I just can't imagine what it must be like to get caught up in something so horrific. Warmest wishes to you.

  7. I've been watching the news coverage of this and feel so sad for all of the people there. What a terrible thing to have everything that you've worked so hard for through the years, and to have your loved ones gone in a matter of minutes! So many awful things going on in the world today. It's really quite scary. Sometimes I just don't want to hear what's going on because it's usually bad news. Very thoughtful post Natasha. xoxoxo

  11. The great thing is, Joplin will recover. in fact they've already started rebuilding structures. It's amazing to see some of that amongst all the rubble, but it's great too!

  13. Touching post. I have kin in Mo. and though they are all safe, the stories from this storm have touched me deeply. So many are still looking for loved ones, I cannot imagine how heartbreaking that would be. Thanks for this beautiful post. It is a lovely idea and one that I may have to adopt from you in the future as I have always found it hard to post lighthearted things when everyones hearts are sad.
