To these wonderful people of Oklahoma, I owe tremendous thanks.
In essence, they gave me hope and belief in people and an understanding of the “Oklahoma Standard,” which made them strong and resourceful in their belief in people, caring, love and God. They make Oklahoma strong, viable and able to begin their recovery and healing.
May we all learn from the humility and humanity witnessed and experienced in Moore. I pray this humility and humanity affects all of us throughout this wonderful country of ours.
As a result of my Red Cross deployment, I grew as a person and came home with a” lesson in humility,” as taught by these fine Oklahoma people to whom I am so indebted.
