It is not our petty squabbles that define what it is to be human: it is our compassion in the hour of adversity. The Oklahoma tornado demonstrates this.
"There are empty spaces where there used to be living rooms, and bedrooms, and classrooms. In time we'll have to refill those spaces with love, support and community."
I wish to express my sympathy to all those affected by the tornado, and my admiration for all who are engaged in rescue and assistance.
And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
