OT: People Tend to Pull Together in a Crisis

Earlier this year we did this off topic article in an effort to point out that most people want to try and help out when a crisis situation unfolds. We are glad to report that in this case the latest news is encouraging and Luke was able to leave the hospital and come back home to his family.

Here in our area we got to see another example of how most people will try and help their neighbor during a crisis. We mentioned that in late Decmeber this area was hit with an EF4 (160mph+ winds) tornado. The destruction was massive and without question many in this area are living through an ongoing crisis. 

But amidst all that we see how people will step up to try and lend a hand. My daughter was home from college for the holidays so she was able to write several articles on this topic for our local paper. Below are links to three recent articles that illustrate what we are talking about. Hopefully, we won't have to endure another major financial crisis. If we do however, it is encouraging to know that there is a hidden asset out there (most people want to help) that could rise to meet the challenge.


Disaster relief efforts include supplies, day camp, pet services, health clinic
