A raging tornado ripped through the small town, Moore, in Oklahoma, and took the lives of too many people including both adults and children. As of this morning, 91 people have been killed by this twisting natural disaster, which also plowed right through an elementary school while it was in session.
My heart and prayers go out to the people of Moore for their losses and the families still awaiting the fate of their loved ones.
No matter who is at the hand of a tragedy whether it be natural or intentional does not make the pain any less. Oklahoma needs our help and our prayers for the safety of many who are still missing and the hundreds of people who are injured from this catastrophe.
Moore, you are in our thoughts and we wish you peace from this travesty.
Took hold of little town Moore
Claiming adults, kids
Praying for safety
And to find missing children
Moore is in my heart
We'll donate to help
As you pick up the pieces
Life no longer same
We are so sorry
For what you are going through
Prayers for the town, Moore
According to the Chicago Red Cross spokeswoman Martha Carlos, "it's too early to tell how many are homeless. Once the area is deemed safe by first responders, then, [we can] begin to evaluate what needs are. While well-intentioned people might be tempted to donate food, clothing and others things...what is needed most is cash donations."
We can donate online at redcross.org or by calling 1-800-REDCROSS or by texting REDCROSS to 90999 for a $10 contribution.
Mommy's Point of View has just made a donation to support the clean-up and aid for families impacted by this unfortunate event. I encourage you, if you can, to donate. We may not think so, but every little bit counts, and it adds up.
