/  Jaywalker   /   On the Road Again

moore okThe staff and men of Solutions are back on the road this Mon. traveling to Moore, Ok., sight of a devastating F5 tornado which hit the community on May 20th of this year.  There were 23 fatalities, 500 hospitalized, and over 2 billion dollars in damage as a result of these 30 minutes of hell.  But those are just statistics. CNN can give you those.  What we are privileged to experience when we travel to these sights of mayhem is the power of the human spirit in the raw. There is no stronger “fellowship” than in being a small part of a community banded together to rise from the scrapheap left at their feet.  It is the purpose of our being, the 12th step alive and in full throttle, the running the run. We as recovering addicts are sober today because we did NOT stay down when knocked down. We grabbed on to an extended hand and stood back up to stand tall and with purpose. It is our purpose to now extend our hands to those who have been staggered by the tornadic winds of these lives we live. There are many who need us. Let us do what we can. THAT is the heartbeat of Jaywalker.
