Early in the morning this week as I take Mathilde for her walk, I’ve been encountering students who are waiting on Foss Hill to watch the sunrise. There’s been some fog, the air is still, and one feels the peacefulness of nature (sometimes punctuated, this week, by music and dancing). How different are the images coming to us from Moore, Oklahoma. The terrifying tornado reminds us of how easily lives are destroyed when the weather turns deadly.
Our hearts go out to those who have lost their homes, and our thoughts and prayers are with those killed or injured. Many in the Wesleyan family will want to help in any way they can. You can send assistance to victims of the tornado by texting REDCROSS to 90999, which will donate $10 to the response effort. More about making donations through the Red Cross can be found here.
