remember our history!

Look how cool! The 240th Anniversary of The Battle of The Brandywine. If I have my numbers right, I believe there are over 800 re-enactors here for this.

These events remember how our founding fathers fought and died for our freedoms. They deserve to be honored, and as Americans we should honor their legacy.

Also remember sites like this and the importance of preserving our history the next time there is a meeting on Crebilly — which is this Tuesday.

There is a conditional use hearing coming up this coming week as per Crebilly Farm Friends:

Reader submitted photo- Hurricane Harvey havoc – Saint Thomas’ Church and School, 4900 Jackwood St Houston, Texas, TX

This is a story that started in Chester County when earlier this summer we sad goodbye to a friend of ours from high school who had been one of the clergy at Good Samaritan in Paoli. He received a new calling and was headed to Texas, to a beautiful church and school in Houston – St. Thomas’ Church and School  Our friend is an associate rector and chaplain at this lovely church and school.

They have been devastated by Harvey. Our friend has barely been settled in but a minute.

The above photo came with a message:

The school and community have been devastated. If you’d like to donate to St. Thomas Episcopal Church & School, you can do it at https://tithe.ly/give_new/www/#/tithely/give-one-time/36235. You can also give through the Greater Houston Community Foundation, where our friend Renee Wizig-Barrios is Chief Philanthropy Officer, at https://ghcf.org/hurricane-relief/. Thank you so much for your prayers and support. 

We made a donation to our friend’s church and school.  We know that we are donating to a legitimate cause. Be sure to check out any place gathering donations for Harvey.

For other ways to give check out the ASPCA website, the Best Friends Disaster Relief Fund, and the American Red Cross Hurricane Harvey .

Use GuideStar , or Charity Navigator to check out non-profits you are interested in. Remember that legitimate charities are not going to cold call you for money.

I chose to help my friend’s church and school.  People who really do God’s work for the right reasons, deserve it.

harvey havoc

The #reality of #Harvey. I have a very dear friend who literally just bought herself a house outside of Houston Texas after moving there a couple of years ago.

Emphasis is on just moved in. She was evacuated last night. We had hoped because she lives in a place that’s higher than most spots that she would be OK. She reminded me yesterday via text that a lot of people forget around Houston is a lot of bayou.

Above is what appeared on her Facebook feed last night. Her name and face are blocked out to protect her privacy but I wanted people to see what this was all about – this is no joke.

She has a son who live near NASA who was evacuated yesterday, and I have two other friends in the path of the storm. I don’t know if they are still sheltering in place or have been evacuated — they are actually Chester County PA transplants.

The other two photos are from my friend in Houston who is more in the thick of it in the city.

So while our president tweets BIG words, this is where this country actually needs him to BE presidential- not just tweet as the president.

Prayers for all in the path of the storm, including first responders. If my friends in Texas send me more updates and or photos, I will post them.
