Schedules? Mother Nature decided otherwise. Maybe it is/was a needed intervention. Why the meteorologists feel the need to name storm fronts is beyond me but I digress.
Hercules rolled through bringing much snow and arctic temperatures across the nation. Drove people to descend on grocery stores because God forbid there is no "French Toast"!
But, it also brought out the best in many people. I read stories of people asking complete strangers if they were without electricity & heat, offering them refuge or resources. I witnessed people stopping to help others that were stuck or experiencing mishaps. My heart was lightened when I knew those with resources were out looking for those without homes and perhaps hope, to bring them into shelter. My faith in mankind was reinforced.
But I am forced to ask :
Why does it take epic weather conditions, major circumstances and other epidemic conditions or war to bring people together? To look out for their neighbors or compatriots let alone give thought to citizens of other countries. My point is, we are all of this world, whatever our circumstances or beliefs. Let's think about that.
