This was a hospital. This was the exact hospital where I had my sweet baby boy at. This hospital was right down the street from this place.
Today was the first time we were able to see the damage. I spent days away trying not see the destruction of my home town. We live in South OKC, but Moore is 10 minutes away. My church is in Moore. Some of my family is in Moore. We rent books from the library in Moore. We go to Moore to eat and watch movies. I grew up in Moore and went to Moore High school. It is shocking and disheartening to see it in shambles. I remember being in college at SWOSU which is about 45 minutes from Moore and hearing the news of the May 3, 1999 tornado that was headed straight for Moore. I called my younger brother and sister every 5 minutes until I got them. 30 minutes before it was to hit, my brother finally answered and said he was going to drive out of Moore. I convinced him to stay and hide in the closet. Luckily, that tornado was about 7 to 8 blocks away. So they were fine. But, coming home to see the destroyed area was so shocking. It brings back horrible memories and makes me cry to see the landmarks that we used to go to destroyed. But God is so good. The lives lost and the damage is not beyond God's power to heal and restore. God is using His people to do that. When we drove around today on every corner, at every business was help for the victims and support. Signs of free water and food here. Cleaning Supplies. Boots and work gloves. Insurance help. Baby items. Even those who didn't lose their house, but can't get into their neighborhoods can get help. God is using His people to rebuild what the Devil tears down. And there is just something about Oklahoma. We are strong and we are a family. We take care of each other. Nothing that stands in the way can't be moved by our God and our friends.
