There’s something about a tragic event that stirs up the spirit of true Americans.
I’m referring to the recent Memorial Day tornadoes that devastated the towns surrounding the Dayton, Ohio area.
After seeing horrific footage of hundreds of homes, buildings and familiar neighborhoods laid to waste, I felt my heart climb into my throat, amazed that very few people were hurt.
Within 24 hours the vast majority of people affected were unselfishly helping each other out. Many of whom had lost their homes and their belongings.
One man convinced his former employer (Miller-Coors) to donate thousands of bottled waters which he and his friends distributed to many who had no water.
It’s typical behavior of Midwestern folks…especially that of small-town America.
It’s also what makes them so special.
They don’t worry about ex-presidents mocking them saying how they “cling to their guns and religion.”
Instead, they’re the first in line when it comes to defending the values and principles of what made America great in the first place.
And they know that helping others in desperate times is more important than worrying about politics.
WE can all learn a valuable lesson watching how they respond when tragedy hits them unexpectedly.
As our nation continues to be subjected to evil and vile politicians (hell bent on destroying the morals and values that still exist in small-town America) we need to remember that kindness and virtue never go out of style…NEVER.
Towns like Trotwood and Brookville (and all of the greater Dayton, Ohio area) are just a few examples.
So, being a small-town boy from Ohio, I want to give a shout out to all the fine citizens in the surrounding Dayton, Ohio area:
“You Are Awesome…You Inspire Us…God Bless You.”
Share this with a friend…especially if they’re from a small town.
They’ll thank YOU later.
