Many of my Liberty and Kansas City North friends have been out of power since the early Saturday hours. A storm blew through and really put a halt to everyone’s plans. Many are still without tonight. We can’t believe we still have power.
But I have heard many stories of sharing and building relationships that are happening when neighbors are forced out of their comfort zones to check on one another. They are not only checking on each other but comparing ideas and news on future repairs. I know that when a tornado came through Liberty a few years ago we headed outside to see how everyone around us was doing. We just had to know how they were doing.
Yet day after day we open our garage doors and head out into the world. Then we return home with not ever having to connect with even the people on our street. It is good that when life happens people do react with support and community first.
It would be great to spend more time with our neighbors outside of these times of natural chaos.
I need to work on that… how about you?
