Bend, But Do Not Break

debris flower

This flower is hanging on the front porch at my parent’s home in Moore, Oklahoma. It was there before the tornado, and it remained after the storm as well.  The window directly behind this plant is shattered to pieces.  The siding is obviously coated in muck and ick.  But just look at this flower!  What a wonderful representation of the spirit of the people of Oklahoma. . .

Happy Monday, friends.  Be nice to each other ♥

    Glad the flower made it. Just goes to show that living things are adaptable, even when bound in a pot. Inanimate objects, not so much. With all the damage in the tornadoes and other storms, if as many people had been destroyed as houses, the United States would be soon depopulated by all the natural disasters. 🙂 I love the picture. 🙂

    You saw the flower as a representation of the spirit of Oklahomans but I saw it as God leaving some hope behind. By the way, what kind of flower is that?
