While many people are licking their wounds after an extremely polarizing election that demonstrated just how nasty people can be, there is still a great deal of hardship and suffering going on in the wake of hurricane Sandy. And people are jumping in with their sleeves rolled up to help. If you’re sick of the political name calling, if your extreme Facebook friends have given you an ulcer, if you’re ready to see something good and useful that celebrates the truly American values of camaraderie and community building, I encourage you to watch this video bout the yellow-vested Mormon volunteers who are showing up by the busload to pitch in and help clean up after the hurricane.
Those Mormons–They’ll do anything to get out of going to church! Click through to see how a little help can mean a lot in the face of devastation.
