Speaking the Same Language

Last night’s severe weather did a lot of damage to Arkansas’ River Valley. Trees are down, buildings damaged, schools closed. Fortunately, this area got thunder, lightning, and rain, but so far as I know, no damage.

There’s something about a calamity that brings people together. Suddenly, everyone speaks the same language. Friends, neighbors, strangers are hurting and others want to help. 

Nobody cares about another’s religion or political affiliation, whether someone is rich or poor, or if they have a pleasing personality. When others are hurting, human compassion and a desire to ease another’s hurt brings us all together, strangers and neighbors alike. I guess that’s the good thing that comes out of devastation.
