This morning I was able to take some time and go to Oklahoma City Children’s Hospital and meet with the Child Life Manager, Erin. She gave me a really good idea of the tornado disaster from inside the hospital and how their child life department handled it. It was an exciting conversation as we brainstormed ideas for better solutions, etc.
From there, I ran to the Oklahoma City bombing memorial before hurrying back to the Center to meet back up with my CDS team.
You can see the individual chairs for each person who died on the left of this picture. And below is a fence with many of the items left to honor the victims:
I kept hearing how amazing that memorial is and I’m definitely glad I got to go see it even for short visit.
People are able to drop off pictures they find so that the pictures can hopefully be reunited with their owners. These pictures in this bag were dirty and torn and stained, but they just might be someone’s prized memories. I love it that someone has made this a priority and will try to reunite people with these memories.
