We have approximately 200 Gulf State Refugees arriving in San Angelo over this weekend, possibly more. I am really proud of Texas and other nearby states for graciously welcoming significant amounts of people evacuating from Louisiana, Mississippi & Alabama – whether for a little while or for the rest of their lives.

“Compassion is not religious business, it is human business, it is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability, it is essential for human survival.” – Dalai Lama

Update: Well, the refugees never came to San Angelo. Evidently Texas (in general) has “too many” and they are going elsewhere. Well, wherever they go, I hope that they will find comfort.
