Tragedy in Moore, Oklahoma PDF Print E-mail

A catastrophic tornado with winds nearing 200 miles-per-hour — which would make it an F-5 — swept through Moore, Oklahoma on May 20, 2013. The storm carved a destruction path perhaps two miles wide and encompassing about 30 square miles. As of very early Tuesday morning, 24 are confirmed dead, according to the state medical examiner's office, with that number expected to rise. 9 of those confirmed dead are children.  Hospitals across the region are reporting 200+ injured. A local news anchor called the storm the "biggest destructive tornado in the history of the world," based on what he's seen. Emergency workers are continuing to search for survivors of the gigantic tornado that tore through a suburb of Oklahoma City.

Colin: A Tribute to a War Hero PDF Print E-mail

Call it a non-traditional tribute to a fallen Marine, but for Gold Star mother Amy Wolfe, it's the perfect, personal way to honor her son.  Wolfe, the artistic director of the Manassas Ballet Theatre in Manassas, Va., will stage a four-movement dance tribute in memory of Lance Cpl. Colin Wolfe, an infantryman with 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, who was killed at 18 while deployed to Iraq in 2006.

Lance Cpl. Wolfe made the decision to join the Marine Corps as he watched the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, when he was just 14.  His mother said his years of ballet conditioning — begun when he was just two and a half — gave him extra strength when he entered the fleet. In training, she said, he was once the only Marine to finish a 15-mile run without taking off his pack.

Tragedy in an Elementary school in Connecticut PDF Print E-mail

A gunman has killed 21 children and six adults at an elementary school in the US state of Connecticut. The killer at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newtown, was a 20-year-old son of a teacher. He is thought to have killed her before the attack. It is one of the worst-ever US school shootings, with a toll close to the 32 who died at Virginia Tech in 2007. Adam Lanza, a 20 year old is believed to have killed his mother, Nancy Lanza, at her home before heading to Sandy Hook school.
