Once again it takes a real crisis to refocus us on what’s really important and honorable about this country.
Absent the posturing politicians and manipulative media are stories of real courage and humanity coming out of Houston and the surrounding area following one of the most powerful storms to hit the nation in years. Challenge and tragedy no doubt remain as flood waters continue to rise, but seeing how so many have responding so courageously I am confident Texans will prove themselves more than up to the task.
Perhaps some day we’ll learn that skin color, religion, and/or sexuality mean nothing in the face of life and death.
We are ALL Americans. God bless Texas for reminding us of that and prayers for a speedy recovery.
