Waking this morning to the news that 100+ survivors of yesterday’s tornado in Oklahoma had been pulled from the wreckage “in the midnight hours” gave me hope. And, the news is currently reporting that the death toll has been adjusted downward. This massive tornado’s 20+ mile swath of devastation is unbelievable and our hearts are heavy with sorrow for the people of Moore, Oklahoma.
Any loss of life is tragic, but the loss of a child is particularly heartbreaking. As the news wires continue to report unending stories of this terrible tragedy, hold your children close.
The road to recovery is long and hard for the survivors and often lonely. So, in the spirit of helping our fellow-man, let’s “pay it forward” today and do something, anything, that helps another person. No gesture is too small.
Until Next Time,
