Helpers in Houston: When Disaster Brings Out the Best

Sunflower w address

The good news is that Texas has an abundance of helpers. I’ve been watching rescue videos and reading about the volunteers who jumped in to help the pros rescue people and animals from dangerously high water brought by Hurricane Harvey. What strikes me is that disasters can bring out the best in people.

The following article,”The Heroes of Hurricane Harvey,” contains several inspiring videos showing people doing good:

And in this video, Abe Minor didn’t know what he was getting into when he took his jon boat out, but he persevered to help as many neighbors as he could.

Thank you to all the rescue workers and volunteers for your dedication and courage!

  1. I know that our state of Kentucky sent power crews (lineman) to help.

  2. It is heartening to see all the caring people who are helping.

  3. many caring for others.
    i was most impressed
    by the black man
    who rescued the white man
    who insisted on bringing
    his confederate flag! 🙂

  4. It’s thoughtful of you to remember the victims of the Texas disaster areas. So many folks coming in to help. It is heart warming to know that class, age, color, or ethnic group does not matter in times of crisis.

    I am very grateful that I live 200 miles north of Houston and that my city of 100,000 plus only got about an inch of rain.
