In the Aftermath of Harvey, This is What We Do

We recently all watched, helpless, as Harvey swept over the Texas coast and into Houston and western Louisiana, and those images flashing across our screens painted an all-too-familiar picture of destruction and despair.  Meanwhile, in our region, we braced ourselves for an unknown blow that might land at any time.  The City of New Orleans shut down, and people drew their loved ones near.  This city remembers.
 
Now we can all catch our breath, blessedly unscathed, and look to the west to help begin the hard work ahead.
 

United We Give Blood Drive

Hurricane Harvey’s arrival in the middle of the annual summertime bloodshortage amplified the critical need for donors across the country. UWSELA is extending this opportunity to the public to provide a cost-free option for those who’d like to give back to neighbors in Texas and Louisiana.

Donors must weigh at least 110 pounds, be 17 years old – or 16 years old and 130 pounds with parental consent – and be in good health.

WHAT:
United We Give Blood Drive, hosted by UWSELA

Lessons Learned from a Mother’s Inspiring Words

We went to sleep last night with news of yet another deadly vehicle attack, this time in Barcelona, and awake to the stories of devastation and loss of life.

This singular act of violence cannot disappear into the dozens of similar attacks across Europe and here at home in Charlottesville. For me, each incident stands alone as a mark on our progress toward a greater good. Each one reaffirms that hate is real and alive in our world.
