I won’t pretend to understand or have a clue what the folks impacted by this devastating storm are going through or what they are feeling right now, but I do know this…
They are not victims.
They are survivors.
I am already seeing it in their faces and hearing it in their words.
I see it as they reach out their hands to one another and as our country comes together as one to make a difference.
The heart of a survivor comforts others even as they need comfort themselves. They wipe away each other’s tears and they hold on with everything they have.
They mourn their losses and move on to the business of living as they realize how very lucky they are to be here – how easily it could have turned out differently.
Our thoughts and prayers remain with those who have lost loved ones and for those who lost their homes. May the coming days bring you strength to face and overcome the challenges and to never forget that you are here and you are a survivor.
