Some will probably be too busy to read this and that’s ok. As you enter #northcarolina
on Highway 85, I placed our #usflag
on the bridge yesterday. It’s been a long week helping the victims of #hurricaneflorence
Despite the many obstacles including impassable roads due to flooding, my 2013 SUV dying, and extreme shortages of basic necessities (and as I left yesterday with an unexpected car payment) I can say without a doubt, I was very honored to volunteer my time and make small differences in American lives. I couldn't HAVE done this without the numerous donations from friends and strangers online. Unfortunately, I can’t do more.
The rain has ended in NC but rivers are still rising. Across our Nation it’s metaphorically pouring though with a different kind of rain, this epic storm is called hate. The waters are rising rapidly and have started to separated our Nation greater than any river could shutdown interstate 95 and physically divide cities and towns. Everyday I see and hear the media and people constantly bombard us with crap. This is not meant to be an endorsement for Republicans or Democrats, rather, the situation causes one to think. What happened to sharing good news?
Someday, something unfortunate is going to happen, perhaps another terrorist attack, natural disaster, cancer or car accident and you may need help in that darkest of hour. In this day and age, it's soo damn easy to bash or complain, to get a fix on social media.
I'm not saying I'm perfect. I have many faults. For me, this is therapeutic and it enables me to continue my service. I don't make a dime doing it. Going into disasters makes me feel good and I hope you feel good as well because your donation helped make a difference and helped the victims of #hurricaneflorence
Thank you NC residents. Your #resilience
is inspiring. Also, I would like to thank those who donated and Thank you @southernpineschevy_buick_gmc
for understanding my unique situation and for your generosity. Leaving here today has "rekindled" an internal flame of selfless service, hope and humanity.
God Bless, thank you to the countless number of #firstresponders
who have whole helped.
