As I've said, we got really lucky here. We escaped the major impact of this continuing front. I've been tuned in to the weather channel today; looking and listening to stories of those who were directly impacted. My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to all those who were in the direct path of these tornadoes and heavy thunderstorms.
Unfortunately, it sometimes takes devastation to bring the empathy and compassion out of people. Seeing that reinstills my faith in humanity. We're in such a techno-oriented society and seemingly isolated from one another (as for personal contact). The stories are heart-felt, sensitive, and sad, yet heart warming to see people helping one another ... stranger to stranger ... we ARE all family. Situations such as the havoc mother nature randomly wreaks, proves it.
