People helping people.

People helping people. I live in south Jersey where we got hit pretty hard by last week’s storm. Of course I lost electricity and phone service. The electric was easy to fix, it took firing up the generator and hooking up some extension cords, plugging in the frig, direct TV and the air conditioner. The loss of the phone left me without internet, so I decided to head to town which is about ten miles from my house. Now mind you, I live in a very heavy wooded area and there were some heavy limbs down but no trees. As I traveled toward town I started to notice a lot more damage than at my house. The storm had really caused a lot of damage to the homes and roads. At one point I came upon some cars stopped in the road because of a downed tree blocking the road. Traffic was blocked on both sides

There were a bunch of younger men and one older couple and myself. The older couple and myself being in the senior citizen age group. The young men decided they were going to move this tree off the road. It was amazing to see. Everyone helping each other to move this tree. People helping people, just like here at WA.J

Most people are basically good. Working together and helping each other is good for the soul.

Americans come together in a crisis. Why can't we learn to get along all the time? Start one person at a time and Pay It Forward. You will change the world.
