The 1980s had their share of tragedies. The decade opened with the assassination of John Lennon. By mid-decade, the names Smith, Scobee, McNair, Onizuka, McAuliffe, Jarvis, & Resnik would become synonymous with the word “hero” when those brave souls lost their lives in the space shuttle Challenger disaster. The decade would end with the Yellowstone fires, resulting in at least two deaths.
One thing has always been true about our nation: whenever we are hit with death & destruction, we pull tighter together as a common people.
While Oklahoma is still reeling from what may have been the largest tornado in recorded history, and the death count climbs near 100, people are coming together to help those who lost everything in the town of Moore, OK.
