Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. ~ Dalai Lama
On May 20th, 2013 a massive tornado hit the suburbs of Oklahoma. The area was struck by winds of up to 200mph (320km/h) making the potentially 1 mile wide twister a category EF-4 on the five-point Fujita scale – the second most powerful type of storm.
Monday’s storm hit Moore, a suburb of about 55,000 people, at 15:01 (20:01 GMT) and remained on the ground for about 45 minutes.
Many people were killed, others are missing, homes and business were destroyed. We give thanks that some have miraculously survived and have been found underneath piles of rubble or safely tucked away in impromptu bunkers.
Everyone from my family and at Spring’s Haven send our thoughts and prayers to all those touched by this terrible disaster no matter where they maybe. We extend our deepest sympathies to these communities for the losses they face.
May the Great Spirits watch over those hurt and injured,
May the families and friends of those lost, find strength to endure.
May all rescuers pull together in clarity and mission,
providing help and healing where ever it’s needed before them.
May compassion, thoughts, prayers and healing blanket this community,
for today and all the days of recovery to come.
And so it is…
