Scenery: Prayer Tower on a Stormy Night

My daughter just graduated from technical school and they held their graduation at the Oral Roberts University in Tulsa. It was a stormy night, having been postponed because of tornados that swept across Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas and Missouri the night before leaving destruction and death in it's wake. Many prayers had been said for the safety and well being of everyone touched by tragedy.

After the ceremony ended, we walked outside to a cloudy, very windy night. We were all captivated by this view from the parking lot, of the 200 ft tall Prayer Tower rising up behind the trees, with it's flame that looked like a glowing flag blowing in the wind beneath clouds rushing past. The photo doesn't do it justice, the whole tower looked like it was glowing in the night! It was amazing.
