What a devastating event.
Yesterday, seemingly out of nowhere, a tornado develops in the metropolitan city of Moore, Oklahoma. Yes, tornadoes happen frequently in Oklahoma, but this one… this one was… is… different.
This was a category F-4 tornado with winds estimated up to 200 miles per hour. A 2-mile in radius super-blender destroying everything in its path, sparing… not a thing. Cars and trucks shot through the air like cannonballs, scraps of metal and debris landing as far as 100 miles away. Horses and dogs and cows and cats and chickens all spotted in the air, then not seen again.
Stories of tragedies unheard of before. Children, in that part of the country, growing up with tornado drills, crouch in hallways, assume a position they have many times before, unaware of the magnitude of what was about to happen.
What happened, was a catastrophic event.
The walls in the halls,
the doors and the floors,
and splintered sticks
and then suddenly,
But it wasn’t over,
and it’s still not.
What can we do, you ask?
We can Give. Moore.
