Since April 27 at least 35 people across six states have been killed in tornadoes unleashed by a ferocious storm system that razed neighborhoods and threatened more destruction in heavily populated parts of the U.S. South.

Mayflower, Arkansas — Unable are the Loved to die
For Love is Immortality,
Nay, it is Deity—

Unable they that love—to die
For Love reforms Vitality
Into Divinity.

- Emily Dickinson, American poet, 1830-1886
