You never Hear this on the News

One of our neighbors recently lost their home to a fire. We got an email yesterday that they had lost everything; they only had the pajamas on their backs and the parents did not even have shoes. My spouse sent out emails to other neighbors calling for assistance for this family.

We heard today that the response has been such a deluge that the family is overwhelmed with all the offers of help; the mother's best friend will let everyone know when they can help. Our neighbors have offered toys for the kids, clothes for the whole family, even a place to stay until their home is rebuilt.

This is why I still have faith in humanity.
