Like many of you, I have watched a lot of footage of the disasterous tornado that struck Moore, OK yesterday. It's tragic, and my thoughts and prayers go out to the many who lost their homes, their lives and their loved ones during the storm.
Yesterday, CBS News was interviewing an elderly woman about the tornado that destroyed her home while she was in it. The interview itself is interesting, how she notes she was just sitting their with her dog and then, next thing she knew, she was laying among the rubble of her home. She specifically notes that she lost sight of her dog and hadn't seen him.
During the interview, the reporter actually notices the dog climbing out of the rubble of the woman's home. The footage is raw. It's emotional. And it just shows how important pets can be to our lives -- maybe especially during a time of major loss. This woman has lost her home...but she has her own life and her dog -- and said that both her prayers were answered.
