My "alma mater" is Oklahoma State University. I use the "" because I didn't graduate, but spent 2 fabulous years there (they don't have a nursing program) but the nursing school I went to was at a branch campus of OSU. I am a 3rd generation Cowboy and my baby sister is about to graduate from OSU. Let's just say this university has been a huge part of my entire life, a school SO rich in tradition, traditions I learned at an early age.
Anyways..... 10 years ago 10 players, coaches, and team members of the mens basketball team were killed in a plane crash. Friday morning my OSU family woke up to news of another plane crash tragedy. The women's basketball coach and his assistant coach were killed in a plane crash late Thursday night. The thing about OSU is that we are all a family even when tragedy is not a current thought, but tragedy brings us even closer. Talk about a school that is familiar with tragedy.
I thought this deserved a post since this blog is about my thoughts and life. Like I said OSU is a huge part of my life, and always has been. Ever you'll find us, LOYAL and TRUE, to our alma mater, O-S-U! Cowboys fan for life!!
My thoughts and prayers are with my OSU family tonight.
Here is just a taste of our tradition I stole from someone's facebook....
