WLOX Editorial: Thank you to everyone helping MS tornado victims

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Even before the skies cleared from the recent devastating tornadoes in Hattiesburg and Petal, people from near and far poured in to help the victims of the storms. And every day since then, good people continue to help those in need either by helping with the cleanup, or donating money and goods. The relief just doesn't stop.

Even when some low life broke in and stole from the Hattiesburg Red Cross, the giving and helping continued. And the Red Cross kept on providing shelter, serving meals and other needs.

To those who steal and try take advantage of those who have fallen on hard times, you should be ashamed and learn from so many good people around you. To the Red Cross and everyone else helping and giving, thank you for all that you do.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
