It seems hard to believe that a week has passed and people are still being rescued from the effects of Hurricane Harvey. In the coverage of the devastation I have been moved by the heroic actions of people helping people. This has happened stranger to stranger, neighbor to neighbor and kin to kin. Coming on the heels of the events in Charlottesville, it has been heart-melting to witness the human spirit triumph when faced with the devastating conditions of Harvey. These everyday heroes bear witness that LOVE is the Greatest.
