How you can help Oklahoma.

This is a hard but necessary post to write. If you want to know how you can help, here are some ways.

Prayer

Please pray for:
  • those that lost loved ones.
  • those that lost their homes.
  • those that are working on the response teams. 
  • the police officers.
  • the teachers.
  • the EMTs
  • the search and rescue teams.
  • my cousin and her husband. They're anesthesiologists at OU Medical and have been working the all call since yesterday afternoon. Last I heard, they received the most critical injuries from this monster.
  • Brandon has a fraternity brother that worked all night in the ER at Integris Hospital. He said it was a very interesting night.
  • My sister and I have several sorority sisters that lost everything, but their families are safe.
  • The BCM directors from my hometown have been deployed to OKC to help.
