The devastation from hurricanes Irma and Harvey is unparalleled in American history. The combined damage of the two storms will eclipse any natural disaster our nation has ever seen by billions. The only positive when something of this magnitude happens, is seeing how our great nation comes together to help those out in need. We put aside our politics and differences, and come together as one Country to help out in unison.
Last night I watched a fair amount of the "Hand in Hand" telethon, which was on every major network. Every Hollywood star worth their weight was on hand, either answering phones, or performing. George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Justin Bieber, Usher, Blake Shelton, Bruce Willis, Jon Stewart, and dozens more. All sitting shoulder to shoulder, all pitching in for the cause. The musical performances were incredible. From Stevie Wonder kicking off the show with "Lean on me" to Brad Paisley, Demi Lovato, Darius Rucker, and Cici Winans doing "A little help from my friends."
Here is the entire telethon from last night.
