Tornadoes are hellish and terrifying and one of the most destructive forces possible in nature. Annually, in the United States at least, they do billions of dollars worth of damage. They stretch like long, cruel fingers, down from dark, otherworldly skies, and destroy homes and crops and lives.
But there’s nothing personal in a tornado. For all their rage and terror and raw, destructive force, there’s nothing like purpose. There are patterns, and the storms that produce them can be predicted and prepared for, but the storms themselves are impersonal, empty of anything like intent.
So while it seems like a mercy that the massive EF3 tornado that’s torn its way across thirty-six miles of southern Kansas hasn’t taken any lives, and done surprisingly few injuries, equally it seems like a very particular cruelty that it’s completely leveled a small farm, on the outskirts of a small town, that once belonged to a small family. But at the end of the day, it was neither mercy nor malice, and instead just a matter of luck. After a hundred years and dozens of similar storms, in the midst of tornado alley, the Tracy family’s farm has finally exhausted whatever luck it might once have had.
I need to see your beautiful smile every day. To cheer me up when skies are gray. It destroys all dismay. Keeps me from going astray. I will always see the glass filled up halfway. The embodiment of beauty, you portray. You are the potter, I am your clay. When I see your smile on any day.
