Emergencies and tragedies like Hurricane Harvey brings out the true American spirit. As difficult as the circumstances are in Texas, Americans are coming out in droves to help those affected. To see how we care for each other gives me hope that America's roots are still strong.
People try to pull politics into tragedies like this, but it has no place. We are just Americans helping each other in need. Government has a place, but for the most part it's the local people that do the most good. In times of trouble communities rally and it's a beautiful thing to see. No one wants those disasters to happen but when they do, Americans answer.
