That's the question I'm asking myself right now. The floods have devastated so much and you just keep reading different stories of heroic acts, amazing survivals and then there are the not so lucky ones that just break your heart.
I've spent much of today buying diapers, wipes, formula and gathering up clothes and nonperishable foods to donate tomorrow. It just feels like so little when people need so much.
I'm frustrated that I'm sitting at my desk doing mindless office work when I want to be out there helping. Doing something. Making a difference. But I will do what I can with the resources and time that I have. I'm lucky to have Friday off to volunteer at a flood relief event. If everyone does a little something, it will make a large impact. I have faith in this.
Our city has come together. Volunteerism is strong, people are optimistic overall and are ready to clean up and start over.
I just want to do more. Be more. Help more.
