Well…. we had a great day. 🙂 Venturing off this morning to the #Atlantacares Event for hurricane Harvey victims sure did give the feeling of true American spirit! There was a diverse group of people in attendance all sharing the purpose of one goal……to help those hurting, to see that the victims of Harvey would at least get something decent to eat, and to let them know that we care, and feel their pain. Well….more than one, but anyway…lol!
The true face of America was present working side by side hand in hand. There were people who even came up from Florida in attendance, Tampa I believe. I am certain they have been here since the news of the storm a week ago. However they remained here in Georgia to help.
I must say the organizer’s did a PHENOMENAL JOB planning this event. Three snaps up and a KUDO’S for them! 🙂 Just in case you didn’t get that…that was my SHOUT OUT!!! 🙂 All the participates who donated the goods, Wal-Mart, Fema, and Chick-Fil-a, one of my favorite fast food places to eat by the way. Awesome! The goal is to prepare 1 million meals to send out to those affected by tomorrow night.
My family will probably go back down Sunday afternoon. I really enjoyed seeing all the people with Heart make the sacrifice…… Yep! Much love to my Fellow Atlantans. I now forgive you for all the days you have made my head and heart hurt while driving beside you on the roads. LOl!!!! 🙂
I’m sorry but it’s true, bahahahahaha!!! Anyway, you do have a big heart Atlanta. I can truly say I was proud to be one of you today. In tough times we pull together, not a part. I know I said it once, but I will say it again, this is the true spirit of America…….WE ARE HEART!
We give…… we give of our time, energy and resources, we make a difference where we can, when we can, however we can! United We Stand against all odds, because we know that we can! Oh Yes We Can!!! 🙂 and we did today! We did it all in the spirit of love.
The spirit of love is unstoppable. That was the exchange I felt, heard, and was apart of. Love being passed to those who are in need. No one cared about the race or political party of the people who were getting those meals. Today we were not Democrat, Republican, or independent in spirit, today we were simply Americans.
I am glad that Ms, Irma did not come through Atlanta with the damage of her husband Harvey…..lol, I say that because they were jointed, but I feel the comfort of knowing that if she had, there would be people joining together in the spirit of love to share their resources to help us. Amen. 🙂
