Most of us outside the U.S and many inside, know that Texas is the greatest state in the union and how they have handled themselves throughout this absolute life changing event has been astounding for the most part. I have to say, all things considered, to date they have carried themselves very well. First, let's consider the size impacted. It's massive. Now consider the population size, in the fourth largest city in America. Now consider in general, the teamwork, the call to action, the actions themselves. Minimal complaining, noone arguing and bickering, people taking charge, others instinctively knowing what to do if noone is there to lead. I believe most people anywhere revert to certain characteristics in times of crises, but would there be such unifying actions in other states? Or would it be like in a Hollywood movie with people complaining, fighting and getting into a debate while the storm and flooding came closer and endangered more? I've been glued to the TV, seen the good and the sad, but I also see a defiant group where those who were fortunate don't bat an eye to help. As one guy said yesterday in his own, Texan way when CNN praised for all he had done to help as he was in his boat, he brushed it off quickly and strongly, "this is nothing. I'm lucky, my home is ok. The least I can do is help others who aren't as fortunate." He then used the opportunity on CNN not to tell his stories of heroism, but to call others to get into the act and use their boats. Unique to Texas?
