There are massive devastating events that by their very scale impel us to band together and give whatever we have to help: our labor, money, prayers. The image of a wing-full of feathers lifting up a bird – when a single feather merely flutters to earth – reminds us to stand up and do something as one powerful force of kindness, selflessness, goodness. In these times an army of Good Samaritans is required and will make the difference we need to see.

The waters will eventually recede, but the good we have all done together will remain.
