Humanitarian use of FB after tornadoes

Post  Paradox on Sat 30 Apr 2011, 9:53 am

There is a FB page called "Pictures and Documents found after the April 27, 2011 Tornadoes" that is dedicated to finding the owners of photos that have been found in the wake of the tornado. It is heart rendering to follow, but what a beautiful use of the site.

I heard a interview on the news. A man was working at the St. Louis airport, a HUGE international airport when it was hit by a tornado last week. 15 minutes later he got a phone call that his house had been destroyed. So he rushed home to find his whole neighborhood destroyed.

The next day he got a phone call from work. 5 miles away, at the airport, a picture of this mans daughter had blown onto the window of the break room this man used. A co-worker recognized his daughter and salvaged the picture for him. In a airport that size I can't even imagine how many break rooms it has. Why that break room? Why at the airport at all? It gives me chills.

A work of the otherworldly, I suppose.

How can it be explained, otherwise? A bit too spook-tacular, eh?


I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.
