By now, I think most everyone with an internet connection in North America has heard about the situation in Texas. It’s not pretty, to say the least. Hurricane Harvey morphed from a simple tropical storm into a Category 4 Hurricane in the span of two days before hitting Texas with the worst storm in over a decade.
The destruction, devastation, and human toll has been escalating ever since. People have died. Homes have been destroyed. Certain parts of that area may never recover. It is the worst storm to hit the United States since Hurricane Katrina.
For once, we need to set aside agenda, politics, and dirty jokes. This is a serious situation involving real people enduring real hardship. Please, if you can’t be there to help directly, consider donating to the ongoing relief effort. Any amount helps. The wonderful people at the Red Cross are already on the ground, doing what they do best. Support them and all those like them as they help a devastated community.
