Thank you, everyone.

BreishaSo this story was posted yesterday around noon, and immediately, the emails and texts came in.

Two lawyers called. Three real estate agents called.  Various and sundry people called with household goods. Someone called to arrange a play date.

So again, I come away amazed at how much people want to help, provided they know who needs help. This is why I could never be a cynic, though journalists do have that reputation. No matter the disaster, the casserole brigade stands ready. Bless ’em.

  1. Nicely done!

  2. Everyone!

    • It’s been a little overwhelming, though I don’t know why. This happens every time. Every. Damn. Time.

      • My guess is, a lot of people want to do something to help, but don’t know what when it involves big issues or problems. When a personal story is told, it’s easier to imagine what one person could do to help that would make a difference.

        What does this family still need?
