If you didn't hear, tornadoes have been tearing through Middle America (where the Hobbits live?), a.k.a., the "Bible Belt"... which holds a fair degree of irony if you recognize Pat Robertson's general explanation for why natural disasters happen when and where they do. Anyway, as of today, the death toll in one small town in Oklahoma alone is 6. Dozens of tornadoes wreaked havoc across 10 states as the result of one 'super storm'. The one thing about tornadoes is how quick people are to help each other in the aftermath. It's a shame that it takes a destructive vortex dropping out of the sky to actually get people to acknowledge each other, but there's something comforting in the fact that when the sh*t hits the fan, people can be downright heroic. Speaking of which, a 15- year- old girl from Chicago saw a fire spreading at a horse stable, and after rescuing her horse, she ran in about 12 MORE TIMES and rescued 25 MORE HORSES! The bad news is, there were about 40 horses total, but she did some good. She got knocked down, stepped on and kicked in the shoulder, but while everyone else watched, she did something about it. Imagine that! We know this is a "record it on your cell- phone" type of society, but every- so- often, you put down your iPhone and get proactive. That's what we wanted to hear about today: WHEN DID YOU HAVE TO SPRING INTO ACTION?
