As the interim pastor of Peace Lutheran, I stay in Joplin only three days a week, commuting from my home in Kansas City, Mo. So I rode out the tornado in the motel basement. The motel was south of the storm's path.
I've never been in a war zone, but I've a feeling tornado-damaged Joplin is as at least as bad as the worst of war zones. One looks at the total devastation in awe.
