Help in times of need

Tragic news we hear – tornado in Union County, people losing their homes, clothes, their hospital, and much more.

It was terrible – people came in to immediately help in many ways – bringing in food, clothes, making sleeping space for many families and college students.

I can’t say all the wonderful things the wonderful people came to help in many ways. You all know.

Now, you have the Pingree family that is having problems saving their home. Is anyone caring about their heartaches, lose their home, people coming by to see them complain. What kind of memories will their beautiful little girls have after hearing talk? They probably can’t read the paper of threats but can hear talk and know Mother and Dad are upset.

Where are all the good people that feel they must help those that need help. We might be next.

I pray that in a few days the Advertiser will have a story about Creston’s good people having done great things for the Pingrees. They need to know people care and are glad to help them catch up, get their confidence, and be happy and wanted.

We used to live in Union County. I went to school there and attended church every Sunday, graduated (from) junior college, taught school before moving to Clarke County and still shop, doctor, attend celebrations there and read and listen (KSIB).
