(Yes, yes, I know I'm back. Briefly, however. I was curious to see how Boruto was coming along, and it seems it's just as bad as it was when I left. But I would like to let those in the north know they're not forgotten)
If it's not Hurricanes in the south, it's wild fires in the north. Or it's Tornadoes somewhere in between. But if there's anything about these storms, it shows Americans can come together during a disaster and help each other, despite our cultural backgrounds and differences in politics. Houston is a prime example. Lines of hundreds of people volunteered to help by using their own boats and trucks, bringing people to safety, or transporting food, clothing and other supplies.
I wish the best for those in Florida, and hope the people down there can follow Texas's example of what to do during a disaster.
But we mustn't forget about the wild fires growing out of control in Montana, Washington, Oregon and California. I live in Oklahoma, and we can smell the smoke from the fires when the wind is blowing the right direction, which is a terrifying thought.
The media likes to play their political games and say we're divided as a nation, but these storms have proven them wrong. We are united and stand strong for our fellow Americans. Our brothers and sisters. We don't call on the aid of other countries, we take care of our own. That's one of the many things that make this country great.
