Today, a devastating tornado hit the town of Moore, Oklahoma, causing death and destruction. It is total devastation in this town with a school being totally leveled with many children, teachers and administrators trapped inside. The homes in this town are completely gone. This tragedy is truly unbelievable and I am sure we will see much more damage in the days ahead.
When these kinds of tragedies happen, we sometimes remove ourselves and feel very sorry for the people affected, but we feel that this could never happen to us. The reality is, this kind of tragedy can happen to any one of us. It seems that the weather is becoming more severe over the years. Severe weather is happening much more frequently, and it seems that it has become much more deadly. I can't imagine what these people are facing after losing family members and their homes all in one day. It is unimaginable. I am writing this blog today to remind everyone that it is so important to treasure every moment in life. Love your families and friends with all you have because you never know what can happen. When you look at your family today, be thankful for the gift of life you have been blessed with because the people of Moore, Oklahoma, have lost everything they hold dear.
This town will need the prayers of all of us to help them get through this difficult time. Take a moment out of your day and think of the people in this town who need your help with rebuilding their lives, and they also need our sincere prayers to get them through to a brighter day.
