  • They say you should never make a big decision when you're emotional. But what if there's barely a moment to think and a life-or-death choice looming?

    In those last horrifying minutes before the EF5 tornado struck, there was no time for reflection or regret. Just questions needing answers, right now.

    Does a pregnant woman go to find her daughter, or protect the life growing inside her?

    Does a husband risk his life to go back for the family pets?

    Do you listen to a spouse on the other end of the telephone, or to the little voice in your heart?

    With death staring them in the face and adrenaline coursing through their veins, the citizens of Moore were faced with the biggest decisions of their lives, and they had nothing to go on but gut instinct amid raw terror.

  • Which of us is to say what he would have done, much less what others should have done?  The answers are easy as I sit here on the couch, warm, dry, clothed in my Sunday best, awaiting a call from a neighbor to whom I give my "Tuesday/Thursday" parking space on a Queens street.  
    1. I protect the life within me.
    2.  Pets don't have souls that live forever.  I leave them to God's providence.
    3.  My wife has theHoly Ghost same as I.  If it's His Will, we'll talk later.

    I have no idea what I'd have done, only that God would not desert me,live or die.
     St. Francis Xavier threw a Crucifix into the sea, at once calming the waves.  Upon reaching the shore, the Crucifix was returned to him by a crab with a curious cross pattern on its shell.
