These families. These animals. These communities. I cannot begin to fathom what these people are going through. It's easy for us on the outside to say "Well, it's awful what happened, but we're strong and we'll rebuild." Our homes and photos and families and sense of normalcy weren't ripped out from underneath us. "Awful" doesn't even begin to describe it. It's a complete effing nightmare. The beautiful thing about this life we all live, is that there's always a little sunshine in the rain.
I think I've discussed this with you in another post, but one of my biggest passions in life is helping others and giving back to my community. That being said, it is INCREDIBLY humbling to be a resident of this wonderful state of Oklahoma. I wish that I could show you all how quickly and fervently and AWESOMELY the people on my social media feeds have lept into action. Their generosity, creativity, and eagerness is inspiring. It's an honor to call these people my friends, acquaintances Tweeps, etc.
Moving forward, I encourage each and every one of you to donate your time, money, resources, equipment, prayers, and whatever else you can spare. The road ahead is long and rough for these people --- do what you're able to make it a little easier.
