I tell ya' what, there are some cynical damn people on here. I agree with all you said 'cause my mother and father lived through that time, the
places are different, but the stories are the same.
As for those that don't believe these kind and caring things could happen again under such pressures need to go and really visit or even move to a
rural community. Even now, we help and visit our neighbors. Our church has a food closet for anyone of any color that has a need. We have a firewood
ministry and deliver free firewood to homes that have needs. We volunteer in fixing up homes, do missions here and abroad, and we actually get
together and have dinners, bakesales, the best Xmas parade ever for a small x-roads community, we all garden, raise-trade-sell-help slaughter
livestock, help at the VFD with stew sells and BBQ sales.
Yes, Virginia, there really are still people and places like your grand mother spoke of.
I suppose there are those that are a bit more high browed and too sophisticated for church and such quaint rural charms, but we won't be hungry,
cold, and prowling around like a lost dog on the side of the road when the stuff hits the fan.
