I finally have a moment to breathe and write a little here on my blog... I've been working in the newsroom at KTRH for days on end, not doing any coverage on a personal level because I was busy getting information out to the masses. I finally got out to do some video of what I could for my station...
I was also curious about the opening of Lakewood Church after they received a huge amount of criticism for not opening its doors, so when they did, I took a look around... LIVE on Facebook. At 29K views, seems I wasn't the only curious one...
I did so much for endless hours to rush information to the airwaves and make sure we had the most up to date information on our website, that I didn't have time to even tell many friends and family I was alright until they reached out to see if I was ok.
So many arrived in shelters over the last couple of days, with no home to go back to, cold, wet, and not knowing where their next step in life would lead them. But what people do when this happens to them in this great city? Have a look:
We all have our stories, I heard countless ones ... of survival.
The truth is I am fortunate enough to be one of the journalists who produced content during this huge moment in history. You didn't see it here because I was on iHeart Radio informing the masses, and hopefully, I pray, saving lives.
The images, I will never forget.
What my city of Houston, TX experienced over the last week broke my heart to see, but I just know the spirit of Texans is powerful and good. If any of you helped a friend, like I did, or volunteered or got out in the water with your boat or risked your own life to pull someone you've never met before, to safety, I thank you and love you for it. As we move ahead together and get stronger through the support of others and our own grit and resilience, I know everyone will recover.
