I, like many of you, were shocked and dismayed at the impact of Hurricane Harvey on the Atlantic coast. I felt helpless as I watched this catastrophic event create widespread destruction. Reports of this category 4 hurricane with 130 mph winds, rainfall so significant that it triggered flash flooding, and the overall damage and devastation caused me to grieve for all impacted. So… one day I decided that I needed to do something to help. It was clear that Houston was getting a great deal of attention and support, however with the help of one of my friends, I was led to two non-profits that provided direct relief to rural areas of Texas.
Below are my blogs from each day with photos and video. I had limited Internet access, so I couldn’t upload right away, but below you’ll find my thoughts for each day. I really wished I could have stayed longer because there are so many in crisis not only along the Atlantic Coast, but in Puerto Rico, the Caribbean, and so many more.
I say this regularly – “give a little; get a lot”. I hope that in some small way I was able to make a difference with others. This is my goal and desire every day. I hope to challenge and inspire you to do the same.
