Opinion: Thoughts While Shaving

Thoughts While ShavingHurricane Florence has come and gone but the hurt continues for just about everyone.  So many strugglin’ with so many difficult situations.  And, numerous stories of ‘good Samaritans’ stepping up to assist.  One such effort is working out of the old Paul Sessoms Wholesale Building in Elizabethtown.  Items are being accepted and then shared (delivered), mostly in the Kelly area.  Volunteers are welcomed.

Just one of many.

Roads are still a problem, and despite efforts by the state as well as others constantly updating, conditions change on a minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour basis.  Our No. 2 son drives a Food Lion truck, was having a difficult time attempting to determine if NC 130 from Whiteville to Shallotte was open yesterday.  Thanks to Jefferson Weaver, finally determined it was open, but as Jefferson described it, barely open, but open none the less.  Jefferson, a well known correspondent for the News Reporter, had just returned from the area.  Can’t have too many friends.

Governor Cooper was in the area yesterday, getting an update on conditions and needs of the area.  So much ‘hurt.’  It’s good to see local folks working together for a common good, not so much at the state and national level where it is insult after insult, both political parties.  Keep thinking it will get better, but not yet.

The 2018 General Election is less than six weeks away.  I wish I thought the situation would improve.  Pray for all.

Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.  Eleanor Roosevelt
