Hurricane Harvey in the Gulf Coast Region
by Joseph Collins
Saturday, September 02, 2017

This past week the southeast part of Texas has been hit with devastating rains from Hurricane Harvey. The rains have resulted in citizens of Texas losing their homes and some have even lost their lives. As the Youth Grand Master Knight of the State of Texas, I want to call us all together during a time of distress for our Gulf Coast Region. Many of your neighbors, friends and fellow Texans are going to need your help and support during these tough times. As the country is divided, we need to use our group and platform to encourage unity and positivity to restore our communities. Get out and help. Please don’t look for an excuse to stay home and become a spectator. Keep in mind, that this storm could have passed over our area and hit yours, devastating your town. It could have been your school completely under water being viewed by the news. It could have been your childhood home in waist deep water needing extensive repairs. It could have easily been your family in a shelter with your only possessions being the clothes on your back. If you can’t make the trip to the Houston area to volunteer, you can donate money to the Salvation Army, churches, or other non-profit organizations in the area that help with disaster relief. Examples of Leadership, Responsibility, and Brotherhood are needed now more than ever. Be the leader you are looking for. Finally, I want to wish good luck to all my fellow knights as we start the school year. I believe all of us are capable of shining inside and outside the classroom.
