We learn after every experience.
We learn that we are strong.
We learn that we are smarter than the test.
We learn that we have the capacity to sacrifice to help others who are in need more.
We learn that humans have no strength against nature’s wrath.
We learn that our local governments are not ready to help us in times like these.
We learn that trauma is hard to overcome.
We learn that hardheadedness won’t get us anywhere.
Most of all, we learn that our Lord and Savior offers us refuge anytime!
The situation is heartbreaking. But the support from all over the world has come pouring in as fast and as strong as the flood waters were. The goodness of the human heart again emerges.
