    In the aftermath of the devastating tornado that struck Moore, Oklahoma, last week, we have witnessed remarkable courage and compassion.  From the first responders who pulled survivors from the rubble, to the teachers who shielded their students, to the residents who sheltered their neighbors, Oklahomans have displayed extraordinary strength and resilience.Governor Mary Fallin has called it the “Oklahoma Standard” – the spirit of neighbor helping neighbor that shined after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and remains strong today.

    Memorial Day is a day of somber reflection on the service and sacrifice of the men and women who have given the last full measure of devotion to their nation. It is the day that all Americans pause to reflect on the sacrifice that is required by any free nation to remain free and defend the right of others to live freely as well.
