Picturing Tornadoes

It’s hard for me to comprehend the massive scale of the wreckage and devastation of the tornadoes in the past week. Living in Arizona, tragedies like this one, and the earthquakes in Japan and Haiti seem so surreal, and I feel nothing but disconnected. I’m glad there’s ample coverage, though, and I hope people who can spare some money will donate to help rebuild.  My thoughts are with the victims and survivors.

When I saw these pictures, they really touched my heart. As you may have noticed from my previous post, I’ve been quite preoccupied with a bunch of adorable kittens for the past few weeks. Yesterday, my brother and I had to take one of the mamas and her babies and surrender them to the Humane Society because some of our neighbors were getting real angry. We still have a bunch of the kittens, though, and I just saw one eating dry food today – hooray, a good home is on the horizon! In the above photo, a man named Andy Page got some happy news too when he found his feline friend safe and sound amid his demolished home in Georgia.
