Want to reunite with friends and family, and even connect with strangers? Talk about the weather, and experience a big storm together, namely a hurricane.
The past couples of weeks, the South and East Coast has been devastated by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Jose isn’t far behind. It’s another time people put their differences aside to help each other.
Of course the media will always try to seek and divide with the release of the expensive iPhone X, and we know a racist or political act is on the horizon also. I call that Hurricane M (simply for media).
Many people have such a hard time reuniting with their families that they don’t have reunions, regularly or at all. Trust me, it’s a lot of work, time and money and it’s good for those that show up. When attendance is dropping and key family members can no longer come or die, it’s almost time to make changes or pull the plug.
Now throw in a catastrophic storm and the relief efforts, people feeling the need to be closer, and folks evacuating to your town, it’s more sincere and heartfelt.
I wish we could come together more than in a time of sincere need. Unfortunately, that’s not what many people want. It’s s mindset and morale thing. It can also be a learned behavior. Perhaps one can start gradual, then adjust. I know one group of people that get together that have outgrown their venue. Others have had to downgrade.
In any event, it’s good to see fellow humankind bonding and being nice to each other.
