I came across these on Flickr today. They were posted by ‘slight clutter’.
And the caption read:
- " I didn’t notice the "emergency exit" when I took
the photo, but found the words to be very apropos once I noticed them. It’s a terribly blurry photo, but, for some reason, it is one of my favorites
from last night."
- "Make-shift relief distribution centers are popping up all
around the city. Right down the street from the Astrodome, a group of seven
strangers who had been turned away from the Astrodome a few days ago when
wanting to volunteer started a food, clothing, and toy collection and
distribution center. The local Toys-R-Us allowed them to set up in its parking
lot. The operation seemed to be very successful. I’m really happy with the
folks in my city at the moment. They are showing their true colors, and those colors
- "I had the pleasure of meeting Dijonaisse (12) yesterday. She
is a complete beauty. She is intelligent, thoughtful, and responsible (helping
care for her five-year-old cousin). She has a bright future ahead of her."
- "A makeshift relief collection and distribution center popped
up in the Toys-R-Us parking lot, Toys-R-Us generously lending about half its
lot for the disaster relief efforts. This little girl, Breanna Sutton, and her
sister were mostly smiles while I talked to their grandma. Children should have
toys. It adds some normalcy to otherwise anything-but-normal times."
- "This particular distribution site was so much more than
bananas, oranges, and chips. This distribution site was pizza and bar-b-que.
The volunteers came geared up to make a difference…bar-b-que pit and all."
All photos were uploaded by ‘slight clutter’.
After all the scary rumors and heart wrenching images of the
past week and a half, it was indeed heartwarming to find such a positive and
hopeful set of photos!
