Watching the tragic events unfold in South Texas, as the local citizens face a life-altering natural disaster, it is apparent that this is what helps make American great. Neighbor helping neighbor. Stranger helping stranger.
No one is sitting around waiting for the government to come in and fix everything. Private boat owners are using their own boats to go door-to-door to rescue stranded flood victims. People from all across America are donating goods and money for hurricane relief. Americans are standing up, showing themselves to be generous and giving.
This is America.
