photos and info from Jeffrey Major on Facebook…
Yesterday, at about 5pm I spent about 3 1/2-4min compiling some of my pics, some friends pics and some off my FB feed, to give my friends in other places some perspective on what’s unfolding down here. I woke up to 10000 shares, 500 friend requests, 100 messages, 15 nonprofits wanting to use the album, and very sweet ladies from Indiana and Iowa calling me a hero and asking me how they can help.
It’s crazy, and on top of disaster recovery, a little overwhelming. But I will take it. Every bit of it. In between clean up and work and fighting bad phone service to check on folks, I’m gonna try and respond to everyone.
It’s time to step up, and my people, Coon-asses we call ourselves, have stepped up. And stepped up big time, in their white boots, their aluminum bateaux skiffs, their big ass trucks, they are stepping up. Welders, fishermen, farmers, lawyers, oil field hands, insurance salesman, housewives, truck drivers, just regular guys and gals who are being real heros. I’ve never been more proud of my people. Please share if you’d like and if you can help, even in some small way, we really appreciate it. Thank you
