The flu is hitting eastern Oklahoma especially hard. One vulnerable age group, young adults, is getting hit the worst.

In response, Oral Roberts University offered flu shots to students and set up sanitizing stations.

The university says staying healthy is a life skill they preach.

"In order to stay as healthy as possible so you can accomplish whatever you have in your career, whatever God has called you to do in your life, being healthy is a piece of that," ORU spokesperson Jeremy Burton said. "So washing your hands, and eating right and getting enough sleep are important pieces of that. Again not just during flu season, but all the time."

Eighteen to 49-year-olds account for six of the 20 flu deaths in our state.

This makes no sense at all. Those people have a hotline right up to God Herself and could simply take advantage of the clear biblical promise from Jesus in Matthew 7:7, Mark 11:24 and 9:23...unless of course they don't -really- believe Jesus enough to rely on him. Why are they disrespecting the book they base their whole existence on? The word "hypocrite" keeps creeping into my mind here...
