Butterfly People

This link is about certain tales that made the rounds after the Joplin tornadoes of 2011...

Whatever Butterfly People were - or were not - they brought comfort to some terrified people at the time: namely children.

There are so many lights in this story - the kind that even Category 4 hurricanes can't knock out. For the skeptics here, you also may find affirmation that do not tax your desire to "keep things real".

To paraphrase my namesake, Lady Brett Ashley in "The Sun Also Rises", about the nature of such tales and their lasting effects, "Wouldn't it be pretty to think so?"
