We don’t have hurricanes here in California. Earthquakes are scary, but they last a few minutes tops, and then life, most likely, will return to normal. I can’t imagine living through a hurricane, having to leave all of your possessions behind and hoping everything is fine when you return home.
Watching the coverage of hurricane Harvey, it seems like the whole country is behind the victims, which is so refreshing because lately it seems like the whole country can’t agree on anything.
My uncle posted on Facebook a list of supplies you can donate to Champion Forest Baptist Church in Texas to help victims who have lost everything maybe start to pick up the pieces. It’s not a matter of life and death anymore, but it’s still critical.
Here’s a message from Champion Forest Baptist Church:
