The news out of Texas shows the devastation of a historic storm. The cleanup and rebuilding will last years. But there is an encouraging side. Story after story shows people sacrificing to help one another. All the lines of division are erased as together Texans fight for survival. The rest of the country is right there, giving, encouraging, coming to help.
Finally there is a big story in the national news where everyone is on the same side. We are pulling together. We really can pull together.
Maybe this spirit of cooperation can carry over, even a little bit, to our other national issues.
