“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”
As the remnants of Hurricane Harvey continue to hover over the gulf coast, threatening an already besieged area with even more rain, it is easy to feel overwhelmed, and helpless. Yet, emerging from the floodwaters we see the true spirit of Solidarity. Neighbors helping neighbors, first responders working twenty-four hour shifts to rescue people who are stranded, companies opening their doors to those who have lost their homes, people from across the country rushing to help – bringing boats, and food, and diapers. This spirit of Solidarity cannot keep back the seemingly relentless rain, but it reminds us that we are not alone, and that we are not helpless.
The American Solidarity Party stands with the people of Houston, Corpus Christi, Rockport, and the entire Gulf Coast region. We call on our members and we ask the entire nation to each help in their own way. Please send your prayers, and if possible, consider donating to help with a recovery that will be measured in months and years. Consider opening your home to a displaced family. If you live in other parts of Texas, donate blood. Mostly, stay with people affected. As this long week stretches on, and rains continue as late as Wednesday or Thursday – do not turn away or change the channel. Continue your prayers, continue your donations, continue your Solidarity.
