Desperation drives searches for loved ones, pets and possessions

At a disaster like Joplin’s, there is looking, and there is

looking

. The first involves gaping at the destruction and

wondering

how anybody got out alive. The second means searching through the wreckage, or the hospitals, or the command centers, or the Internet sites trying to find someone,

hoping

they got out alive.
