Just when you think the country is hopelessly divided, something bigger than politics shows up and dumps four feet of rain on millions of people.
Nothing unites more than a tragedy.
People automatically rise to the occasion and help each other above everything else including their own precarious situations.
There are two kinds of problems.
Thing problems and people problems.
The damage from a hurricane is largely a thing problem which can be fixed eventually although there is always an underlying psychological component.
People problems are worse.
The death of a loved one, loss of any kind, hurt and pain.
Out of bad comes good as we have seen in tragedies such as the recent Houston and Gulf states flooding.
When at a loss for words to grasp the evil of it all, remember the first responders.
They are the light that never goes out among humans.
