We Can Make A Difference

Thank you all for your well wishes and expressions of concern for me and my instigator, Mary, in wake of the recent floods and tornadoes that ripped through the South. Fortunately, Western North Carolina was spared the devastation and both of us, and our families, are fine.

Unfortunately, that can't be said for some of our sister states, especially Alabama. My heart aches when I see the pictures of the destruction and can only imagine the misery of those who have lost loved ones.

Some of you have asked what you can do to help. While there are many agencies hard at work trying to assist victims, I would encourage you to make a contribution to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief. These good folks are on the scene making sure people have a safe place to stay, food to eat, and support services to get them through this very difficult time.

To make a donation, visit the American Red Cross website, call 1-800-RED-CROSS, or text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a donation. Together, we can make a difference.

Thank you again for your thoughts and prayers.
