Scary pictures. I can't imagine what that was like.

I hesitate to veer into the philosophical for fear of side-stepping the very, very actual suffering of those impacted by this tragedy. That's not my intent. It's just so hard to avoid seeing the fragility of our nation's infrastructure as a tangible metaphor of our consumerist values.

As tragic as it was, I am simply amazed more people weren't hurt.
