I feel very lucky today.
My family is safe. My home is intact.
But across the Southeast, thousands of others do not share my good fortune.
At least 250 people died yesterday as massive tornadoes plowed across Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia, ripping communities up by their roots.
People are missing. Homes are gone. And rescue teams now move street by street in Alabama, picking through piles of rubble.
Two months ago, I joked about my fear of tornadoes. I have no jokes today.
Instead I humbly pray for those who lost so much.
