A mere 5 months ago I was living in Houston, Texas.
If I were still there, I would have likely lost just about all of my material possessions.
But worldly possessions, for the most part, can be replaced.
And it reminds me how important it is to appreciate the simple things, to be thankful for my health.
It reminds me, it teaches me, how fragile life can be.
If you ever wonder where to find America’s spine, take a look at these attached images.
These are images of Americans being Americans. They were born from the same American spirit found after 9/11, or Katrina, or the next disaster. They are not seeking fame or fortune, they are not trying to create conflict.
They are the silent people, they are the majority, they are America’s spine.

I donated to JJ Watt’s relief fund – but there are several others that I trust will put the money to work.
Even a modest donation, $1, helps if everyone comes together.
