A Moment of Humility

hurricane gustav.jpgBaseball will go on.  The race for the presidency will go on.  The outlandish diatribes of RSBS that make ’em say “Uh” will go on. 

But today, with Hurricane Gustav making landfall, I’d like to take a step back and remind our brothers and sisters in the Gulf region that they are most definitely in our thoughts, that we’re pulling for them and most importantly we’re here to help.

Politics aside, we all learned an important lesson with Katrina: that the strength of this nation is only as strong as the strength of our people.

While the storm rages and causes devastating damage along the way, our spirit shall remain strong because today we are not merely residents of a cardinal direction.  We are not just midwesterners, northeasterners, southwesterners or southeasterners: we are Americans.

And that means we’ll make it through — together.
