The Resiliency of the American Spirit

This is my first (hopefully of many) blog post so here is a bit about me. My name is Stephanie Nussbaum and I’m the Social Engagement intern at the National Headquarters in Washington, D.C. for the summer. I work in the digiDOC and am having a very positive experience so far. I particularly enjoy being able to control the huge screens in the digiDOC (for those of you who want to learn more about the digiDOC, click here). I am a rising junior at Amherst College in western Massachusetts and am majoring in American Studies with a concentration in History. At Amherst, I am a member of the crew team, which I hope to continue during my time in D.C.. 

Despite the devastation the tornadoes have brought to Oklahoma, the people are still hopeful. The following photos from Instagram are just a few, of the many, examples of the strength and resiliency of the American spirit in The Sooner State.
