    This is NOW the time for all democrats, republicans, independents, liberals, conservatives, alt left and alt right to put aside differences and come together as one people, one nation to help our brothers and sisters in their hour of need. Let’s all put Love in our hearts and reach out to all those in need.

    Forget the divisions by race, color, creed, national origin, and whatever else is involved with “identity” politics. We are ALL Americans; we ALL bleed the same red blood.

    First, please pray for our brothers and sisters who are now undergoing this life threatening situation and horrific aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and potentially, Louisiana.

    Second, please donate to organizations such as Samaritan’s Purse: https://www.samaritanspurse.org/disaster/hurricane-harvey/
    or the Salvation Army: https://secure20.salvationarmy.org/donation.jsp

    Both of these organizations are currently involved in assisting the ongoing crisis in Texas.

    May God Bless and Protect the victims of this storm and the first responders and volunteers who are trying to save lives.

    Here’s another disaster relief fund you can also donate to to assist those in need in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

    Knights of Columbus Disaster Aid:

    I just received this Nationwide Appeal from the KofC:

    Brother Knight,

    Many people in the Gulf Coast of Texas are reeling from the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey this weekend. Thousands have evacuated their homes, many of which have been damaged or destroyed.

    The recovery process is going to be a long and painful one, and your support is urgently needed.

    Please DONATE TODAY to help those suffering such devastation. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to relief efforts. This includes providing immediate needs such as food, clean water, shelter and other necessities.

    God bless you for your support.
