In a week of a earthquake and a hurricane/tropical storm, it is useful to look back and see what stood out as memories or lessons learned. One feeling is of gratitude for relatively little damage, harm or inconvenience. Another standout is the positive and cooperative attitudes of people who shared in these events. Driving up and down to NYC and back on Saturday in particular demonstrated people's good humor, friendliness and helpfulness in times of shared troubles ahead. People in shared experience came through for one another and that is great to experience and remember.
