Heartwarming videos of parents reuniting with kids at Oklahoma school destroyed by tornado

Two heart-wrenching videos from NewsOK of Oklahoma parents reuniting with their kids at the Briarwood Elementary school that was destroyed by yesterday’s tornadoes.

It’s raw video, and it’s really quite amazing.  The second, below, shows a mom finding her little son.

(Equally heart-wrenching, a woman is reunited with her dog in the middle of an interview about losing her dog in the rubble of her home.)

This one was particularly heart-warming – Trenda Purcell reunited with her son Kamden.

    i see videos like this and think about all the children and parents we have we have put through similar circumstance in the name of promoting democracy, parents and children all around the world react to tragedy just as we do, when will we take that into consideration when waging war because we can.
