    I still do not understand
    Why people went to work
    And children go to school – they knew this very deadly tornado
    We've all heard it on the news

    Why does this clip cut out the segment where the woman states she's an atheist? It's quite plausible that instead of relying on "God" to protect her & her child, she relied upon her own best judgement and thus verifiably saved two lives. Had she instead hunkered down in the bathtub and prayed, that family would have been decimated. I'm sure there have been innumerable instances where people have died in catastrophic circumstances DESPITE vigorous praying, but of course no one ever hears about THOSE occasions.
