Across the Nation...
From the flooding in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands to the fires ravaging California our fellow citizens are being met by seeming non-stop natural disasters. We might want to turn away from the news; the continual barrage of suffering can become overwhelming. If we do we miss the opportunity to recognize our neighbors’ suffering, and their rises to the challenge.
You probably saw the stories about the “Cajun Navy” the people from Louisiana and other parts of Texas who hitched up their fishing boats to come over a hundred of miles to rescue people from the flooding. You might have missed the stories of the people of Puerto Rico who, without anything but their own shovels and saws, before any assistance from the mainland, were clearing roads and pooling their food to be sure everyone had something, no matter how meager. In Santa Rosa, California, with the fire just over a mile away, the managers and crew of the Chic-fil-a, some whose houses had already been destroyed, showed up to work and opened the kitchen to feed first responders and people who had lost their homes.
Some of our members in Texas lost much due to Harvey. Our members in the Bay area are dealing with a lot of smoke and ash and particularly in the East Bay area with the danger of more fires. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Please stay safe and take care of your families.
