Channel 10 ABC News (San Diego) reporting that children are still being pulled from the school building in Oklahoma. Seven children have been pronounced dead. No more survivors are expected.

Lord have mercy.

May their memories be eternal.

Memory Eternal to those who have died.

I believe there is a Western Rite parish in Moore? St Thomas the Apostle. Does anyone know if was damaged?  Maps show it was close to the track of the tornado.

The coverage of the events of the past 24 hours have been and continue to be heartbreakingly tragic. My thoughts and prayers go out to ALL involved.
