Proud to be a TENNESSEAN

Please take a few minutes to watch this video (at the bottom of my post). Since I live near Nashville and recognize most of the places on the video, it made me cry. However, it also made me feel very proud to be a TENNESSEAN.

We are a hard-working, proud people in our state. This flood got almost no national coverage --but that was okay! Our people just rolled up their sleeves and went to work, taking care of things themselves. You never heard of any looting or robberies... It was (and is) just a 'people-helping-people' event. I guess we're not called the Volunteer State for nothin'!!!

Things happen to all of us --at one time or another. I guess it was just Nashville's turn. I'm just happy to say that I am proud of how Nashville chose to handle its problems. If you read the statement at the top of my blog, you will read that life is all about how we choose to handle the things which happen to us. Hopefully, people in Tennessee do a great job keeping that 'positive' attitude ---even through tragedy.
