Texas Deluge

I’ll have more to say on the situation unfolding in Texas. There are still a lot of rumors flying, as there were with Katrina, so we’ll wait to see. It’s a disaster of unprecedented proportions.

However, I did want to note how moved I am to see thousands of people — cops and civilians — doing what they can to help. It seems that every time I turn on the TV or fire up Twitter, I’m presented with images of cops rescuing people from rooftops, civilians in boats rescuing people, trucks driving into the region with supplies or houses of worship opening to anyone who needs shelter. Most without being asked. Most without being paid. All without beating their chests about how heroic they are.

This is who we are. And no politician or political group will change that. As long as I see Americans looking for out for each other, I will maintain my hope for this country.
