Highlighted events and information.
Children’s TV personality Mr. Rogers learned from his mother that amid news of tragedies and disasters we should “look for the helpers.” Without diminishing the devastation in eastern NC wrought by Hurricane Florence, I and those affected most profoundly are indeed heartened by and are even among the helpers. I could share many details from specific situations in what is, unfortunately, quite a widespread area. I want to share just a couple of the many stories that involve both devastation and helpers. While statistics are important, stories are compelling.
