It is interesting.
One goes into a grocery store and suddenly finds themselves speaking with complete strangers....about...."The Storms".
People seem to need to talk about it.
We are all suddenly connected.
It doesn't matter whether you are young, old, black, white, Democrat, Republican, rich, poor, etc.....we are all in this together.
Everyone who was spared from these horrendous storms feels the need to reach out to those who weren't as fortunate.
Dave and I found ourselves at Costco today purchasing items....not for ourselves....but, for the storm victims who have been left without anything. We dropped the items off at a local store that was taking donations. It felt good....but, strangely....not enough. What else can we do??? It is almost a helpless feeling...the destruction is so overwhelming. It is hard to get one's mind around it.
Life goes on all around me.
But, it feels significantly different.
It is almost as though you want to hug everyone you see.
Strange....but, wonderful, all at the same time.
