This month of August 2017 the skies have been dynamic even before the Eclipse and Harvey passed through.
This Big Sky photo was taken two days after the Eclipse. Two more days and Hurricane Harvey would roll into Texas, pause inland, pouring tons of water leaving devastation through the South Texas Coast.Today, the skies were filled with similar clouds and light as the above photo. Life shifts in less than an instant.
As I write this, drenching waters have stopped falling from the sky in Houston. They continue in Louisiana. It is six days later. People have begun to return to the places they lived outside of Houston and other coastal towns. Response and Rescue efforts continue. People from all over are coming together to offer aid and ongoing support and help.
This is catastrophic and it is not over. This will take time. Many want to help now. And they are. There will be multiple good ways to help. Meetings are happening all over to organize help. As the waters go down. The help will continue to arrive.
Practice Self care for yourself & Family . Be mindful . Breathe
Embrace Blessings . Share Good
Do your research . There is already fake news floating about.
And unfortunately the scammers and thieves will begin to come forward to take advantage as the waters recede. They will take advantage of those effected first hand by the storms and those wanting to help those effected by the storms.
Lets All work together however we are called. Big or small, a single gesture or with a huge Team. Immediately or further down the way.
Lets help not just today or this week but for the months it will take.
Support . Help . Compassion & Kindness
