“When you love you wish to do things for. You wish to sacrifice for. You wish to serve.” ~ Ernest Hemingway
In my hometown right now, they are battening themselves down in anticipation of Hurricane Florence. I am concerned for my friends and loved ones. It could be bad. It could be worse than that. It could veer away and be little more than a nuisance.
But it could be bad.
I see on the social media many people offering their homes, couches, and space for refugees of the storm. Safe havens for those in need. Offering their open arms and their pantries for those damaged or stranded by the storm.
Open arms. Open hearts. Empathy, sacrifice, and serving those in need out of pure love for fellow humans.
Remember when our country used to have that same attitude?
