"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Charity in times of disaster

It's too bad it takes a disaster for people to step up and help out. But I'm also thankful that these mega events, like this week's Hurricane Sandy and last year's Hurricane Irene, provide an opportunity for neighbors to meet each other, give each other a hand, pool resources. It's living old school when neighbors weren't afraid to borrow a cup of sugar or share homemade treats.

It doesn't have to cost a lot, or take much effort. Consider this shot from a home with power after Hurricane Sandy:
