#HoustonStrong: Texans come together during Hurricane Harvey

Despite being a harrowing week for my fellow Houstonians, I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that I’ve never been more proud to be Texan. Stories and images of communities coming together during Hurricane Harvey have filled my feed, giving me hope and bringing me to tears—after all, helping a fellow neighbor is just the Texas way.

News outlets have created videos and lists highlighting local heroism, but not nearly enough to cover the types of posts I’ve been seeing locally from friends, family, and neighbors. It’s been devastating watching my hometown suffer from afar, but these heartwarming stories have reminded me of the compassion and resilience that will help Houston get through this.

This is #HoustonStrong.
