Texas has been hit by Hurricane Harvey with a fury. People have lost their homes, their pets, and their way of life because of this. I don't live in an area that's susceptible to hurricanes; Earthquakes are far more likely, but if there was a disaster then wouldn't you want everyone helping to restore your community, your home, and your lifestyle? Nobody should be abandoned and it's our duty to pitch in. Even if it's not much, like J.J. Watt's donations, you can support in ways that can make a big difference. This colorful painting is by Terrance Osbourne depicting Hurricane Katrina that stuck New Orleans.
