One of the things I love about the blogosphere is that you find information about major events on a personal level.
I've been following this dope photographer/filmmaker named Xavier for a while. He features a lot of his work on his blog Que The Lights.
I popped by his page today and saw an amazing video on the devastation that crossed Tuscaloosa, Alabama on April 27,2011.
The state was hit with tornados that ripped through people's homes and lives. He directed a short film on the events and I was touched!
The film shows some of the actual tornado, as well as interviews from people who survived.

"Someone asked me, 'do you feel like a victim or do you feel like a survivor?' I never really felt like a victim of the tornado. I felt like I can't complain. I was alive... I would say i'm more of a survivor."
