Just a note from hurricane vulnerable Houston — we know what you’re going through. It’s rough to look around and see so much destruction. And yes as people note in other comments — you’ll build your way forward. But for now, I wanted to say I’m sorry for what you’ve lost and for the rough days ahead. It always mattered to me in our dark days to know that others knew what we were going through and cared. Not pity. Solidarity.

Over time I’ve made many “storm friends” and they’ve turned out to be the best. Hang on. You’ve got friends.
