I was in the thick of it and left just 2 mins. before they rushed Westboro.. Our town has suffered horrible losses with 23 of our precious children taken from us in the tornadoes last May..They said it was God's retribution for our godless town.. Mind you, there is a church on every other block it seems..The last time they came here, their tires were flattened and no one would help them..I am proud of my town and the people of Moore...
