The Tragic Yet Inspiring Story of Pam Whitaker, A True American Hero



- Advertisement -

Most Americans were sleeping peacefully in their beds the morning of February 7th, 2008. I happened to be staying at a motel in Auburn, Alabama that morning. Since I usually work the night shift, I awoke around 3 AM and ventured down to the lobby of the hotel where a television set was tuned to CNN's coverage of the tornadoes that had ravaged through several towns in Alabama, Arkansas, and Tennessee.

I was particularly interested in watching this coverage since warnings of this powerful super cell had been issued in the Northwest Alabama region where I live. I was astonished at the tremendous power of the storms that was evident in the pictures which CNN was broadcasting of homes completely obliterated in the wake of the tornadoes.

As I watched, I became totally engrossed in the following early morning interview done by CNN's John Roberts with Pam Whitaker who had just survived a night of terror in her town of Lafayette, Tennessee. Pam was quite understandably in an apparent state of shock as she stood there speaking with the reporter as the storm's destruction was unveiled with the sun's morning light.
