Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey was worse than what some expected, but complaints continue to come in. Weather reports stated that water may rise from 30 to 35 feet.  Ofcourse, it was worse in some areas. Telling people to stay home wasn’t the right response. We remember what happened during the Katrina failures. Nevertheless, people are being helped a lot faster. Pray and do what you can.  But one young lady was sitting on the roof waving. I suppose she didn’t want to leave. Unfortunately, quite a few people are that way. No matter what help is offered. There were people in a hotel who were rescued. Officials did say to stay on a roof and not in attics so that rescuers can see them.

The dam can only hold back so much before it breaks. I continue to learn more on a daily basis. Harvey continues to move on up. Tornado warnings have been issued. Hopefully, it will settle down so workers can start cleaning up. A lot of property has been damaged. People will rebuild or move somewhere else. It’s something how fast rain can buildup. I know flash floods are other terrible storms. While a weather guy was reporting, a guy drove right past him. That was not the right thing to do. We’ve seen drivers get trapped that way. When water levels rise too high, no driver can get through.

They’ve opened more centers and that’s a good thing. People need everything; food, clothing, water, medicine, you name it. Some should have friends and relatives who are willing to help. But did any of you see the flying red ants? They were in colonies drifting in the water. I’m telling you that is something. And don’t forget the alligators and snakes. I saw a brief report that some famous people are offering help. That’s good. Anyhow, do what you can and pray.

Come together

It would be beautiful if people got along. They would never argue or complain. They would see eye to eye on so many levels, but we don’t live in a perfect world and we’re not perfect. Nevertheless, we should as people get along better. I know some of you have been hurt so bad by certain people or individuals you really can’t stand being around them at all. Who hasn’t gone through that? But our world is full of so many other people who are not that way at all. There are so many songs about people coming together that we’ve all heard over the years. Music can bring people together. I love Santana, but I haven’t heard any new songs by him in years. I have all the old ones.

So I went to his website and guess what I found! The original Santana band are getting together for the first time since 1973. Santana IV CD came out last year. A new album came out in April. This band has the most soulful Latin blues rock songs by any group or singer. No one does it better. But you all have your favorites. Let love shine in. Check it out.
