The cold-blooded killings of 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday ought to give every decent human being a wake-up call. Civilization is under attack inside of our own borders. And possibly most troubling, the attack is coming from within.
Rows of tall, empty cardboard boxes stand at attention waiting to be filled. Each box represents a family in need; each family represents a child or several children. There are hundreds of them. The math equates to more than 3,000 Galveston County children in need this season.
Galveston County is moving forward. The Daily News family was not immune to the storm, but compared to many others, we are blessed. Too many have lost too much.
The Daily News is going to do all it can to help our local businesses recover. While many have sustained storm damage, others are opening their doors to customers. And more will reopen in the coming days. What we hope to do is help get the word out of who is open for business.
