On a Sunday in May 2008, an F-5 tornado struck the town of Parkersburg, Iowa, killing eight people and destroying 250 homes and businesses within 34 seconds. The next day, Parkersburgs beloved football coach, Ed Thomas, made a stunning prediction: God willing, we will play our first home game here on this field this season. One hundred days later, the home team scored a victory on the field they dubbed The Sacred Acre, serving as a galvanizing point for the town to band together and rebuild. But just as Parkersburg was recovering, another devastating tragedy struck. While working with a group of football and volleyball players early one morning, one of Eds former students walked in and gunned him down point blank. Ed Thomas was 58. The murder of this hometown hero spread across national news headlines. Eds community and family reeled from shock. Yet the story doesnt end here. What happened next proves that even a double tragedy is no match for faith, love and the power of forgiveness.
