Dear friends in Oklahoma: Hope will find you

In Alabama, we have an idea of what you are going through in the Oklahoma community of Moore. We continue to recover from the tornado that destroyed much of our city, Tuscaloosa, in 2011. If there's one thing we learned, it's that hope will find you, even when you can't find it.

Op-ed contributor Meredith Cummings writes, 'Moore will benefit greatly from patience even though, if you’re like me, all you want to do is snap your fingers and put things back the way they used to be.'
