As many have heard, Oklahoma was hit with a devastating tornado that has left parts of the OKC area decimated—including the town of Moore which happens to close to where Stephen’s family lives.
I got Aimee’s text message saying that the sirens were going off and they were heading for the shelter. Little did any of us know what would take place in the short time following that message. Thankfully neither her nor any anyone else in our family was hurt but my heart goes out to the families that have lost everything, including their relatives and pets. I couldn’t stop crying when I watched the news last night and saw the crumbled school.
Stephen and I cancelled our trip to Big Bend and will instead be doing anything we can to help out. If you are in the area, Moore’s Red Cross station is looking for volunteers and donations. Their phone number is 405-228-9500. Water, trash bags, clothes, any little bit helps.
