The events that have occurred in Houston over the weekend have been severe. There have been death and injuries as well as mass destruction due to massive flooding. Many of us including myself have family members or even friends that live somewhere in the Houston area. I encourage you to check on your loved ones and send your well wishes. Some people, such as Tom Joyner, have done even more.
