I know I did not cover the story myself, but it still tugs at my heart. You would think that since I have been in this field for a while that stuff like this would not bother me so bady. There are some stories that just make your stomach churn. I have a feeling that the fire was not accidental. There has been other incidents here in Tulsa, where the facts do not add up. My co-workers believe that the record-breaking heat has something to do with all of this craziness. Maybe they are right, heat exhaustion will make you do not so normal things.
Since the 4th is a few days away, I am hoping that I can get away and enjoy myself without hearing about more Oklahoman’s dying or getting injured. I love my job, but I would love to be able to enjoy a holiday without having to cover a gruesome story as soon as I return to work. To me, it seems like there is always horrible things happening in Oklahoma all of a sudden. My co-workers keep on telling me that I am becoming jaded. I guess they are right. Hopefully being off of work for the next couple of days will do me some good.
Since I will not be at a computer on the 4th, I want to wish everyone who reads this, or stumbles across this a Happy 4th of July!!!! Although those pretty fire works are awesome, remember what the real meaning is behind the 4th. I hope everyone is able to spend some much-needed quality time with their loved ones, and friends! lastly, Do not forget to be safe this 4th of July!
