Now I know what a war zone is like. We have thousands of people coming into Houston. I talked to a young girl who was in a state of shock, because she had no idea where her family was, and no idea how to find out. Seeing people in that kind of state is unreal. If you live in the Houston area or can drive here, they need volunteers at the locations shown on this web page:
DO NOT CALL THEM. They are swamped. Just go down there and volunteer. If you have a spare room or some type of shelter, you might offer it to someone.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
