Are We Getting Better?
Friends from around the world sent their regards to us about the winter storm in Texas last week.
The world media also reported the tragedy that hit our communities: out of power and water, people lining up for food.
Right before the storm hit our state, city and county governments had already opened the warming centers. In many locations people could spend the night there. In the last few days President Biden announced that Texas is a disaster area and that the federal government would immediately open up disaster centers and reach out to help affected people in the area.
When we review this disaster, we find that the State of Texas did not prepare for such winter temperatures. And because of the changes caused by global warming and the lack of solid infrastructure, the winter temperatures went down under seventeen degrees. We just can’t meet the challenge.
In Austin, Governor Greg Abbott and state representatives went into an emergency meeting in an effort to try and find an answer to what happened and resolve the situation for any future problems.
Today the beautiful sunshine came back to Texas again. We still have confidence and are looking forward to a better future for our community.
