As I reviewed news stories about the tragic Oklahoma tornado, I couldn’t help but notice the stark contrast between a photo taken from far away and one taken up close and personal.  The first photo is from NASA: “The image was captured on May 20, 2013, at 19:40 UTC (2:40 p.m. CDT) as the tornado began its deadly swath.”

The second is from a CBS News account on the day the storm hit: “A child is pulled from the rubble of the Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Okla., and passed along to rescuers Monday, May 20, 2013.”

My thoughts and prayers go out to the people who are struggling to cope with the aftermath of this huge disaster.  How wonderful to hear stories of the many, many people who are giving personal, selfless service to help the good people of Oklahoma.
