During the past two months, the American people experienced three tragic occurrences that caused a great deal of hurt, misery and grief to thousand of people. Each of these events were felt deeply by all Americans. The first was the tragic and senseless bombing in Boston; the second was an explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas; and the third was the series of severe tornadoes in Oklahoma, that did tremendous damage. At press time there were 24 confirmed deaths and more than 275 injuries from Moore, Okla., which was hit the hardest. It was amazing that more people in Moore weren’t killed. The tornado that hit Moore was two miles wide and stayed on the ground for 40 minutes. The destruction in its path was devastating. Neighborhoods and business areas in Moore looked like a war zone.
The American people responded to each of these tragic occurrences as we in this country have come to expect. Tragic events always bring folks together and that’s a tribute to the people from all walks of life who make up our great country. Regardless of the type tragedy, everybody pitches in with their time, efforts, money and prayers to help the victims in every possible manner. When tragedy happens, it brings out the best in folks. That’s the “American way.” We are most fortunate and blessed to live in the United States of America and we should never take that for granted.
