Joplin students return to school with lessons in resilience

It’s been nearly three months since an EF5 tornado destroyed one-third of Joplin, Mo., killing 160 people — including one school secretary and seven students — and injuring more than 900. Nine of the district’s 19 buildings were destroyed or severely damaged. The scars are still there; no way they couldn’t be.
