Disney Wordless Wednesday: Disney Dads

In honor of Father’s Day, this week’s Wordless Wednesday is all about Disney dads!  My father passed away when I was an infant, and my grampa was always ready to step in for me.  And whether he likes it or not, he’s become a Disney dad, grampa and great-grampa (aka “Papa the Great”)!

I’m sitting wide awake at 2:00 in the morning watching the news I tried to turn off several times. I literally can’t turn away from the TV or stop checking social media.

Of course, with social media and internet anonymity comes venom. #PrayForOklahoma has been trending in Twitter all afternoon and night. Some twits are viciously telling those urging others to pray that prayer does no good. Don’t waste time praying. Actually do something. Those are the rated G versions of tweets to which I’m referring. I’m going to assume that after you tweeted your maliciousness that you did your part, as well.

Prayer and action are not mutually exclusive. Those who are praying for Oklahoma may also be texting REDCROSS to 90999 or FOOD to 32333. They may have run down to the grocery store to load up their cars with diapers and water and food for families and first responders. Or they may have prayed and gone to bed. As an Oklahoman who has seen this devastation countless times, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that my fellow Okies appreciate all of it. Even “just prayers.”

You’re certainly welcome to send your negativity into the universe, but that truly does no good. So, send my state your prayers, good thoughts, positive energy, good mojo, donations or whatever you want to put out into the world to lift those impacted by the disastrous events of the last two days.

If you want to help, remember that you should only donate to organizations you trust and you approach. Do NOT donate to anyone soliciting donations.

  • Donate $10 via phone bill by texting FOOD to 32333 (Regional Food Bank) <—This would by my top choice, as it’s a local Oklahoma organization and proceeds are guaranteed to be used in Oklahoma
  • Donate $10 via phone bill by texting STORM to 80888 (Salvation Army)
  • Donate $10 via phone bill by texting REDCROSS to 90999 (American Red Cross)

Or #PrayForOklahoma.
