Please watch the video first.
My family has been through some tough stuff, rain and flooding being pretty high on the list. Never thought we would have to go through it again though. I explain most everything in the video but I wanted to add something.
Please be very careful with your words. This is more than just house. It's memories, and hard work and a place where I spent 20 years of my life. 20 years! So before you ask about flood insurance or say that you would just tear it down and move or make some tired joke about lake front property, think about the fact that it's more than 4 walls and a roof. It's a big part of people's lives. Unless you have dealt with something similar, you have no idea what type of heartache that comes with losing a home. So before you comment on someone's photo status or retweet that photo, have compassion for those that are losing their possessions.
