Jennifer Wruck's Brother-in-Law is a a resident of Fairdale, IL.

This is the first film footage he shot, from his phone, of his heroism of a search and rescue just minutes after the twister tore the quiet little town apart.

Heroes don't always were capes. Heroes come in all sizes, and the biggest I've seen are those that come from small rural towns.

The saying says, that pictures say a thousand words, but this video speaks volumes.

It shows the true grit of the small town integrity and sense of community.

God bless all of those involved, including Jennifer Wruck's Brother-in-Law, who have been there since the minute that tornado passed.

Please keep these communities of Fairdale, Kings, Ashton, Rochelle, Kirkland, Cherry Valley and Belvidere in your prayers.
