A Tale Of Survival From Oklahoma City

I must admit, I was totally blown away by the damage and devastation when the tornado from last week, demolished several parts of Oklahoma City.I only hope that Oklahoma City recovers from this quickly, and my heart goes out to all of those who have lost a loved one in the midst of this tragedy. There was one story that really captured my attention when I saw it on CBS This Morning last week. It was so heartwarming seeing that moment. I've shared the video above for you all to see. The good news about this horrific tragedy is that it's brought together people from all over to help this woman and her beloved bowser. There's already two programs on www.gofundme.com. One fund was started by Erin DeRuggiero. Her fund has already raised over $36,000 towards her $50,000 goal. You can see her fundraising page here. This story has had a reach that has gone everywhere. Actor John Barrowman (known from being on Torchwood, Desperate Housewives and Dr. Who) has also created an assistance fund on Go Fund Me that is off to a good start. To date, they've raised 1,000 dollars.

The Appeal Of This Story

This is a story of survival that has struck a chord with people. Many of us have a grandmother or relative who is a senior citizen who live by themselves. Many, like Barbara, are lucky enough to have a dog or cat for a companion but otherwise are living alone.
