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.
Lately, it has become so very hard to watch or listen to the news because of the tragedies and losses of lives and homes. And it really it hitting home with much more frequency than ever before. Politics and not people should be the focus, I agree.
God bless each an every one of those touched by this tragedy. My heart and prayers go out to them.
You are so right. We are all Sooners. Lately the news has given us daily shots to the heart with enormous tragedies. The Red Cross and I are on a first name basis.
My prayers go out to those whose lives will never be the same.
Hi, I think we all need to pitch in; we can no longer, nor should we, rely on the government. I was glad to hear that so many non-profit organizations are sending workers and aids.
such incredible and horrific devastation.....
seems as if every time there is a natural disaster in the U.S., I donate to the Red Cross. This time, I took the plunge and pledged a monthly donation to them, because something is always going to come up!
My love goes out to all my brothers and sisters in Oklahoma.
