Why does it take tragedy for us to realize what has value?
Listening to people whose lives have been turned upside down
reminds us of what is really important.
To see your home is gone is terrifying.
To know your things are all over the neighborhood is mind boggling.
To know personal papers are being read by others is invasive.
To know that your insurance coverage won't be enough is gut-wretching.
To see that your 25 year old trees are gone is hard to comprehend.
But to know that everyone is safe,
That many people are helping through donations,
That many people are using vacation time to help clean up,
These are the actions that help people know they are not alone.
Think about some tangible ways you can offer help.
