Houston Hears Your Prayers, America, Thank You
By Sarah Jane Moerbe | Fox News Opinion
Stopped in our tracks. Harvey managed to put a halt in the busy-ness of a major U.S. city that is usually bustling with traffic and people and economic activity.
Although Houston was prepared for Harvey days in advance, nothing could have prepared us for what has unfolded in these few days. Days that have seemed long and never-ending, with a rain that doesn’t want to stop and a storm that seeks destruction. But it has not destroyed us, it will not destroy us.
Harvey has left an impact for sure. It has displaced families, ruined neighborhoods, and even taken lives. But it has also impacted Houston in other ways.
Harvey has brought Houston together as one common thread. It has torn down boundaries of race, background, and financial status. In just a few short hours, walking around the neighborhoods in the storm, I saw more people interacting with each other than ever before. We are equals here, after one common goal, to help those in the greatest need.
