I cannot imagine the agony of having her snatched from her school and taken who knows where.

    This last batch of killer tornadoes missed our area. But the lives and places devastated this time hit a little closer to home.

    The Mississippi folks at the conference we were at were getting some pretty scary reports from back home. Others from North Carolina were still talking about the toddler who died in a tornado that struck nearby. Friends in a ministry organization we know were deeply wounded by the death of a coworker and his daughters in Arkansas.

      It just sounds weird. "Mount Everest is closed."

      But that was the headline last week. No one's climbing that most iconic of all mountaineering conquests.

      Because last week 16 Sherpa guides were lost on the mountain. As blocks of ice as big as automobiles came cascading down on them.

        It was awful. That Korean ferry rolling into the sea. Then disappearing beneath the waves. Filled with trapped passengers - many of them teenagers.

        It's heartbreaking to see all those loved ones on the dock, grieving inconsolably. Over their children who will never come home again.

          The Finish Line

          "We own the finish line!" - Vice President Joe Biden at the memorial service for Boston Marathon bombing victims

          Wow. I heard that and said, "That's Easter!"

          Death - life's finish line - has never been the same since Jesus blew it away that first Easter morning.
