12 Quotes on People Helping People in Disasters like Hurricane Harvey

Natural disasters bring out the best and worst in people. There are some who race to the rescue of people they don’t even know. They are our everyday heroes.  Men and women who see a need and just go do something to help.  I love these people. We all do. It builds my faith in the goodness of people. There are still lots of good people on planet Earth.

Then there are others who take advantage of a bad situation.  The liars, cheaters, and thieves. Some people see a disaster as a quick way to take advantage of people in distress. Be wise my friends. Disasters bring out the best and the worst of people.
