Reporter: WHEN AN F-5

TORNADO RIPPED THROUGH

MOORE, OKLAHOMA, IN

MAY 2013, IT SEEMED TO TAKE

EVERYTHING PRECIOUS FROM

ROSS AND DANNY LEG.

THEIR HOME AND CARS WERE

DESTROYED AND ALL OF THEIR

BELONGINGS LOST.

THEIR 9-YEAR-OLD SON,

CHRISTOPHER, WAS KILLED,

ALONG WITH SIX ANOTHER

STUDENTS AT PLAZA TOWERS

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

HE ACTUALLY CHOSE TO GO

DOWN THE HALL AND SIT BY A

FRIEND THAT WAS CRYING.

HE WAS ALWAYS A GIVING

CHILD, VERY BRAVE.

AND HE DID WHAT WAS RIGHT.

HE ACTUALLY ENDED UP SAVING

THE LITTLE GIRL THAT WAS

SITTING BESIDE HIM.

EMOTIONALLY FOR US, IT

HAS BEEN JUST OVERWHELMING

GRIEF, ANGER, FRUSTRATION.

Reporter: AFTER THE

TRAGEDY, "OPERATION

BLESSING" CONNECTED WITH

DANNY AND ROSS AND THEIR TWO

SURVIVING CHILDREN.

OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL

MONTHS, THEY HELPED MEET

THEIR BASIC NEEDS, LIKE

GROCERIES AND ITEMS FOR

THEIR HOME.

THEY OFFERED SPIRITUAL

ENCOURAGEMENT AS WELL.

WHEN "OPERATION BLESSING"

SHOWED UP, THEY WERE, LIKE,

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

HOW CAN WE SERVE YOU?

THIS IS SUCH A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY TO MEET SOME OF

THE FAMILIES THAT WERE

AFFECTED, BUT ALSO TO DO

SOMETHING THAT MAKES A

DIFFERENCE IN THE

COMMUNITY.

Reporter: ALSO, AFTER

THE SCHOOL REMOVED THE

ORIGINAL MEMORIAL FOR NEW

CONSTRUCTION, "OPERATION

BLESSING" SURPRISED THE

FAMILY BY BUILDING A

MEMORIAL GARDEN FOR

CHRISTOPHER RIGHT IN THE

BACKYARD OF THEIR NEW HOME.

WOW!

THEY WOULD SHOW UP ON MY

DOORSTEP, AND IF NOTHING

ELSE, JUST GIVE ME A HUG AND

TELL ME IT'S GOING TO BE

OKAY.

AND WHERE I MISS MY SON SO

MUCH, THAT THEY WOULD MISS

HIM WITH ME.

BECAUSE THERE IS SOMEONE

WHO HAS GOT A STRONG FAITH,

A STRONG COMMITMENT TO HELP

US, TO BE OF SERVICE TO EVEN

WHERE EVEN THE SMALLEST

THING CAN MEAN THE BIGGEST

DIFFERENCE.
