Remembering Moore, Oklahoma- May 20, 2013- Please Share if you care..

The tragedy in Moore, Oklahoma that claimed 24 lives, including 9 children, still remains fresh in our minds. The EF5 tornado registered as one of the most catastrophic cyclones on the tornado damage scale. May 20, 2013 marks the anniversary of, the loss of 12,000-13,000 homes, billions in wreckage, lost memories, and more grieving hearts than one can count.

 


Rescuers scanned through debris after this vicious storm swept through the town.
Lifeless bodies were discovered, with expectations to find more. Rescue workers sifted through the ruins, while those that escaped revealed their brave narratives of survival.


Our sincerest and most heartfelt gratitude goes out to The  Champions for Children. These heroes protected numerous children during this hardship, and have remained supportive and invaluable in this challenging year after the storm.
