    Default This Image Speaks to Me In So Many Ways ...



    7 May 2012 from AP Photo/Charlie Riedel
    "A tall steel cross is refracted in raindrops on a window in Joplin, Missouri, on May 7, 2012. The cross is all that was left standing of St. Mary's Catholic Church, which was destroyed by an EF-5 tornado that tore through a large swath of the city and killed 161 people nearly a year ago. "

    Personally... find the Photo too depressing, sad... and haunting.

    Looks a bit like 'Angels' falling from the skies... like every droplet is a dead or dying 'person'....

    Sorry... this photo give me the chills....
