I was in the diner the other day when a woman, purple-faced, began screaming because her check was $1.50 over what she thought it would be. Turned out that she didn’t figure in that her egg white omelet cost more than a regular one. Then, on TV, I see folks in Texas wading, waist-deep in water or trapped on the roofs of their homes (if they are lucky, crammed into shelters) and each one expressing gratitude for having been rescued. What dignity. There are those who had to be separated from their families because there wasn’t room on a rescue boat. And there are those who drowned and others who witnessed that.
There’s so much need. Even socks…anything. For as little as ten dollars we can help them. redcross.org
