Help Is Here

Hope and inspiration! A wonderful post!

I returned home just days following Hurricane Harvey’s rampage through this part of Texas, getting a first hand view of the devastation to some 100+ families, not including the dozens of businesses that were impacted in our small town. The saddest part of this tragedy is most of those affected could not afford these life changing events.

They lost everything…except each other. They have no clothes, no shoes, no food, no furniture,  no school supplies, no homes, no direction…and no money.

Thank God for the humanity and good hearts of some of our fellow men, but others are a lot to blame for the suffering of their neighbors.
