Come Together

hurricaneWhile we debate and debase the actions of NFL millionaires, thousands of people in the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are discussing how long it will be–estimates are in months, not days or weeks–before they have power, and how long their food supplies will hold out. At the same time, a lot of people on the Florida, Texas, and Louisiana coasts are wondering if their lives will ever be the same again. But! In all those places, and other places suffering from the wrath of mother nature, people–most of them–are working together and helping each other to recover and put their lives back together. I know a couple that live in the Virgin Islands, and they’re not complaining, they’re going out every day and helping people who are in worse shape than they are.
I want to add one more thing: This is the first and last time I will ever publicly mention the NFL/Flag issue. In the overall scheme of things, it means nothing. We have bigger fish to fry, and there are a lot of people out there who need a hot meal.
We’ve prayed, and that’s a good thing, but the time has come to get up off our knees, come together, and help people–anywhere, and any way we can.
Just sayin’.
