How can we turn our minds away from the tragic consequences of the tornadoes in Oklahoma? We cannot and we should not. Please give to the charitable organizations that are helping these suffering people, many of whom have lost pets, loved ones, and all their material possessions.

The two US Senators from Oklahoma are Jim Inhofe and Tom Coburn. It is of interest that both of these men repeated voted AGAINST funding disaster aid to victims of Hurricane Sandy. Both opposed increasing any funding for FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency). In the interest of honesty, I must shamefully admit that our representatives voted against the aid as well. Yes, we whose eastern border is the Atlantic Ocean.
Right now we all need to put politics aside. There are people in great need. We are all Americans, and this week we are all Sooners. Do as much as you can to help.
