The loss of life--especially the loss of children--was devastating. I will never forget the unbearable grief I saw when I met with mothers and fathers who had lost a child, or the scream of a woman who had just learned her husband had been killed.
But I will also never forget the brave and compassionate actions of so many of our citizens: men and women taking complete strangers into their homes and offering them a place to sleep and a warm meal; Oklahomans, and even people from neighboring states, dropping everything to volunteer their time and resources to help the recovery effort.
Today we are rebuilding and well on our way to recovery. Main Streets across central Oklahoma struck by tornadoes are once again thriving. We owe that success to our resilient, hardworking people. They are, as we say, Oklahoma Strong.
We understand the most precious thing we have is clear water and clear air. Our environment is exceedingly important as a quality of life issue for us, and we enacted these regulations, together, because we love Oklahoma.
