Down in Texas, Young Democrats and Young Republicans are laying aside political differences to aid flood victims in Louisiana. (See the story here.)
This is the kind of political story that makes you go “Wow!”–in a good way.
It raised a couple of thoughts when I read it.
1. This is a story of young adults acting like adults, which adults don’t seem much inclined to act anymore when it comes to politics.
It’s a hopeful sign for the future that these young people are fellow Americans (and Texans!) first.
2. The thought occurred to me that disasters bring out the mettle in people. Too bad it takes catastrophic events for Americans to come together, to love one another, to help one another.
