Oklahoma Will Remind Us of Community

Communities can survive disasters. People will come together and help each other clear the path to rescuing what is salvageable, rebuilding what has been destroyed, and healing broken hearts. It will take time. It will take strength. It will take courage. And it will take a community. 

What has happened in Oklahoma is horrible. What happened in Texas was horrible. What happened in Massachusetts was a tragedy. 

I believe in communities and the capacity for people to not only survive, but heal from the disasters and tragedies that strike it. We have seen it again and again; and our hearts soar when we do. It’s just that our hearts are crushed to realize that yet another community will need to rise to the occasion  We just need to remember that communities can and will – once again.
