Orlando Has Our Love Candlelight Vigil

Early this morning a gunman opened fire inside an Orlando nightclub killing 53 people and injuring dozens more, in what is now being called the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

Showing solidarity with the community of Orlando, Tulsa will host a candlelight vigil.

The vigil will be hosted at Club Majestic, today, Sunday, June 12, at 8:30 pm. Club Majestic is located at  124 N. Boston Ave., across from the Guthrie Green.

SOS - Support Our Schools

Funding for public education is in crisis. The shortfall is impacting everyone in the State of Oklahoma, not just the thousands of children in the Tulsa area.

TTCU The Credit Union wants to help. We're making a $1 million challenge pledge to help public schools within the areas served by our branches. With this donation, we're launching "SOS – Support Our Schools," a campaign to raise significant funds for Tulsa area public schools.

Our goal is to raise $4 million for Tulsa area school districts. We're asking philanthropic groups, area businesses and individuals to join us in this effort.

In times of crisis, Oklahomans come together and answer the call. That's just the Oklahoma way. This crisis should be no different. Businesses, organizations, individuals — together we can make a difference.

Donations are being coordinated by the Tulsa Community Foundation. Donations can be designated for a specific school district or given to the general fund.

Here's how to donate:

Lauryn Hill apologizes to fans after 2-hour delay at Atlanta concert

Fans, musicians and media all weighed in on Lauryn Hill’s tardiness to her recent concert in Atlanta, causing the singer’s name to trend on Twitter for much of the day Saturday.

But the one person who remained silent was the singer herself.

On Sunday, in a message posted to Facebook, Hill said she is "figuring out a plan" to make it up to fans who waited more than two hours to see her perform at Chastain Park Amphitheatre on Friday. Due to her late arrival and the venue’s 11 p.m. curfew, the singer only performed for less than 40 minutes before her sound was cut off.

“I have nothing but love and appreciation for the fans in Atlanta, and regret not being able to give you a full show,” the Facebook message reads.

Hill, who's show was scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET, took the stage around 10:20 p.m. She was forced to stop singing during her set because of a strict curfew that the venue, which is located in a residential area, enforces.

The crowd booed the singer when she first started the show and when she was forced to stop singing.

While a fan video seems to show Hill blaming her driver for her tardiness, her Facebook message makes no mention of the driver. 

Hill said she will announce details about how she plans to make it up to fans as soon as she has them.

Daddy Days: A letter for Mother’s Day

In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought I’d share a letter the 1-year-old wrote to my wife.

A couple weeks ago he pulled me aside and said he had jotted down some thoughts for a Mother’s Day card. He knew I had some writing experience, so he asked if I could look it over. This sounded reasonable, so I obliged.

I had to polish it up a bit (man, kids can babble on), but here’s the finished product:

Dear Mom,

We’ve been close since the beginning. For whatever reason, we just seemed to click. I’m hungry, you have food. I want to sleep, you put me in bed. I need a clean diaper, and you detect this through some magical power — I’m convinced is hidden inside your nose — and give me a fresh diaper.

From vicious vacuums trying to eat me to loud noises coming from the radio, you’ve saved me so many times. I love that.

I also love that you understand how challenging walking can be. And how any shirt I’m wearing might as well be a straight jacket when it comes to me trying to remove it.

I love that you appreciate my prowess at climbing the two steps to the top of the 24-inch slide in the backyard. And also how you celebrate my slide down every time as if I just scored a perfect 10 in the high dive event at the Olympics.

I’m sorry about the whole splashing in the toilet thing and that “code brown” situation in the bathtub. I should know better. But I’m thankful you were there to handle it, because that Dad guy doesn’t know what he’s doing when it comes to bathroom situations.

(Just between us, he totally asked me if I could just “hold it until Mom gets home” the first time he was watching me while you were gone.)

I have to admit I was confused by people patting your tummy and saying, “the baby will be here soon.” I thought I was the baby. I did some research into the subject and it appears I’m going to be an older brother. I’m assuming this isn’t going to impact your ability to protect me from the vacuum.

But this isn’t about me. It’s about how wonderful you’ve been. No one has made sure I was more completely taken care of than you, and I know my baby brother is going to be just as well taken care of.

In the 15 months I’ve been in this world (and the two years we’ve been together), no one has more thoroughly shown me what love is than you. I love that.

I hope you have a great Mother’s Day. You’re certainly a great mother.

Five facts about Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is here. Many will be celebrating the holiday with margaritas and Mexican food. Here are five facts about the Mexican holiday that you can use to impress your friends.

1)      Despite a common misconception, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day. The holiday celebrates the Battle of Puebla, where, against all odds, the Mexicans made a stand against an invading French army in 1862.

2)      Cinco de Mayo is celebrated more in the United States than it is in Mexico, with the exception of the city of Puebla. Mexico holds more of a celebration on its Independence Day, September 16, than it does on Cinco de Mayo.

3)      The holiday means big business for the avocado industry. The California Avocado Commission says that Americans consume around 81 million avocados during Cinco de Mayo.

4)      Chandler, Ariz., has a unique way of celebrating Cinco de Mayo. It hosts a Chihuahua race every year. The event has been cancelled for 2016.

>>Quiz: How much do you know about Cinco de Mayo?

5)      The 2010 U.S. Census estimates that about 31.8 million U.S. residents are of Mexican origin. The largest concentration of Mexican-Americans is in Los Angeles, the city that holds the largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in the U.S.
