President Obama visited central Arkansas on May 7 to survey the devastation wrought by recent tornadoes and severe storms in the region. Obama made a statement on disaster recovery efforts from Vilonia, framed by the rubble of destroyed homes. “More than any disaster, it is that dedication and commitment to each other that truly defines this town. As one resident said, ‘We just say a prayer and then get to work,’” Obama said. “The people of Vilonia and all the other towns devastated by the storm understand there’s a lot of work that remains to be done, but I’m here to remind them that they’re not doing this work alone.” Credit: The White House less
