Today, I answer three of the messages received.
Armies of volunteers from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been leaving their homes every weekend and camping out in tents as they travel to remote locations of Florida to help with clean up efforts. 7,000 in number so far have spent every weekend since the hurricane to help with debris clean up, flood reclamation of homes, and roof repair.These volunteers have come down of their own accord from North and South Carolina, Georgia, and less impacted areas of Florida.
Those in need call into a crisis hotline and the volunteer answering the phone fills out and posts work orders. Volunteers work on each order one by one. They have already filled thousands of work orders.
DML: What a great story. By the way, we sold out of the DML News hats. My wife will be looking into a person or entity in Florida where we can donate the proceeds we allocated from each sale. For those of you who did not get a hat, we will have more in the future. Big thanks to those who purchased the hats. Mary is shipping them all this week.
Instead of watching the NFL I wish a league could be started with veterans playing flag football. Would LOVE to watch as I’m sure a lot of patriotic Americans would.
DML: I’m not a veteran, but I can still throw a ball pretty far. Can I play, too?! If not, I would still tune in. Great idea.
DML, I’m not turned off by Hannity and Bannon but am turned off and sick to my stomach to see Hillary Clinton spewing blatant lies about the President being a racist!
DML: You’re referring to my poll this morning. Although I respect your opinion and appreciate your email, I am saddened by the way in which people like yourself have responded to the poll. Thus far, 60% appear to agree with you.
Months ago, I’d argue why I think you’re wrong and try to persuade you to think differently, but a lot has changed with me over the past few months. I’ve come to really appreciate that life is too short. Therefore, I pick my battles wisely. With that said, as for the poll results, I’ll just shake my head temporarily and move on. More importantly, thanks for taking the poll and voicing your opinion! God bless America.
