Open Hearts, Open Schools

My kids' school, The Episcopal School of Knoxville, is opening their doors for children who have been forced out of their homes in Gulfport, MS. So far, two new kids have already been enrolled in classes there and will start next Tuesday. I don't know how long they'll be here, but I'm certainly glad to welcome them.

We have Parents Night tonight, and I'm sure that will be a big topic of discussion.
The headmaster has also offered to let students come in the fall, and is looking for host families.

It's hard to comprehend the word "refugees" applying to someplace in the US, but it's true. Four years ago, it was 9/11. Today it's a hurricane. Pray the next one isn't worse.
