Where were you on April 27, 2011? As we approach the five-year anniversary of that day, we invite you to share your memories with us.

We will never forget April 27, 2011 and the devastation witnessed in Tuscaloosa and across our great state, and we'll always be grateful for the way our community and neighbors responded in our darkest hour. We plan to honor the five-year anniversary of April 27, 2011 in a special way.

We're asking you to share your memories and photos with us--we'll feature your stories and pictures in a special gallery on our website. If you have something you'd like to share, you can post in the comments below, or you can email your story to me directly at meg@b1017online.com.
