Texas will be dealing with the effects of Tropical Storm Harvey for a long time. The storm peaked as a Category 4 hurricane to flood tens of thousands of homes and claim dozens of lives. In its wake, the city of New Orleans has signed an open letter to the state of Texas remembering how Texans pitched in to help after Hurricane Katrina and vowing to offer assistance in any way needed.
"Twelve years ago, you took in hundreds of thousands of us,” read the letter, which was published Sunday in the Houston Chronicle. “You opened your homes, closets, and kitchens. You found schools for our kids and jobs to tide us over.”
On Monday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck took a moment to read the letter and admire New Orleans’ example of Americans coming together.
“The enormous loss of property and livelihood provides us an opportunity to wrap our arms around American neighbors who need our help,” Glenn said.
"Our doors are open,” New Orleans wrote in the letter. “Our clothes come in every size. There's hot food on the stove, and our cabinets are well-stocked. We promise to always share what we have.”
