“Money may be the root of all evil. But the cure is simple, C-O-M-M-U-N-I-T-Y. You don’t need money to talk to one another face-to-face, money to love one another as men - women – family - friends - neighbors. You surely don’t need money to be there and help another in their hour of need whatever/ however that may be.” - Muhammad Ali
Five days to Christmas, ten days after the devastation inflected upon five US states by a powerful storm system. The heartwarming love from tens of thousands; donating whatever they can, some abandoning their Christmas plans to go volunteer on the ground in the communities affected. The amazement of such a heartfelt jester, of a person leaving whatever they were doing to help strangers. In some cases, hundreds if not thousands of miles away. Yet, these men and women put their own lives on hold to be there for others in their time of need and loss. The kindness of the Human Spirit is amazing and falls perfectly in with the truest meaning of this season.

The amount of donations, money flowing into these areas has brought a whole new meaning to “The Season of Giving”! There are also groups donating and delivering food, water and making shelter for the countless volunteers and emergency workers on the ground in these areas. Over the last week, it has been apparent that the need for and of, people-helping-people is natural and beautiful to its core.
It turns my stomach to add this. To what should be a standalone Testament of the Human Spirit working with God. But there is a dark side to what is unfolding. Now enters the vilest, most anti-human thing called “politics” and its friends “vanity” and “gluttony”. Reports from Western Kentucky started surfacing Saturday, December 11th, 2021.
Sgt. Josh Hughes, Bowlin Green Police Department
Sargent Josh Hughes of the Bowling Green, Kentucky Police Department STOPPED ALL search-and-rescue operations in progress. He stopped the volunteers because of the shirts many of the volunteers were wearing demanding they leave immediately or be arrested. The reason, these people were militia men and women (most former law enforcement, military with loads of training), who weren’t there in camouflage or with guns by their sides. NO, they were there in Bowling Green as VOLUNTEERS wearing Patriotic T-shirts just lending a hand to their fellow man.
