Three-and-a-half years ago, I was in financial peril. I wrote a posting, “Financial Dysfunction: It's Not the Heat, It's the Humility” and friends and strangers alike sent me money. My community came out for me because they sensed my survival was at stake, and that I was in the throes of emergency. We get these calls--and respond to them--all the time. A close friend or acquaintance suddenly has medical bills to handle, someone's home is washed away in a flood, or destroyed by fire, in a far off country there is an Ebola crisis or starvation. Our compassion prods us to give maybe a bit more than we think we can afford. And in the case of my community showing up for me, I am deeply grateful.
