I apologize for the delay in posting. I flew home about a week and a half ago to Houston and as probably many of you know, a hurricane and storm came barreling through. I arrived to visit my family and since the disaster has happened, I have never been more proud to be a native Houstonian. While my family and our house has remained safe and intact, many people from neighbors to friends have lost everything. In the wake of the tragedy, my friends and I have gotten in my family’s boat and assisted with the search and rescue teams to bring people to safety. In a world of such political differences, our city has come together.
Being here and seeing the communal response from a broken city has restored my faith in humanity. I am so fortunate to be able to have a house to come back to tonight as many friends do not. I encourage anyone in Houston who is lost , stranded, or needs a roof over there head, please do not hesitate to reach out. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will provide an update soon.
