Walking




Early Sunday morning I joined my mom and 19,000 others downtown for the 9th annual Oklahoma City Memorial marathon/walk. We participated in the 5k walk that circled around downtown OKC. I can't tell you how inspiring it was to see 19,000 people in the streets of OKC. In front of us people. Behind us people. We ended the walk when the first half marathon participate ran through the finish line and by the time we reached home we watched the winner of the full marathon speed down the streets to the end of his journey.

In 5th grade a year after the bombing took place my elementary school art class painted tiles that would later be chosen for the children's area of the memorial. My tile is placed on the wall for all to see. It's an honor to have my tile in the exhibit.

Have a wonderful week and happy Monday!
