Galveston born and Houston raised. I love my city, always have and always will. 2017 has been a very trying time for my city, as we have been hit by storms before but had no clue what devestaion Harvey would bring. No one thought it could ever be worse then Allison but it was so much worse then we ever expected. Driving around the city seeing it in shambles, even still brings me to tears. Harvey affected everyone in some form or fashion, as it did not discriminate against race, age, gender, rich or poor. We were not hit as hard as some but we still lost EVERYTHING. More then 2 months later and people are still trying to rebuild and find some normalcy to their lives, it is heartbreaking.
I have always supported my home town teams as I will always support Houston!! I however am not an avid sports watcher. That being said I've always like the Astros but have been disappointed over the years. We have produced some amazing players and hall-a-famers but we have always fell short of the championship. I know that the team has gotten better over the years, acquiring more all-star players and this season has been great from the start, but the most amazing thing this team did after Harvey is beyond words.
My team played with everything they had while their own families were dealing with the devestaion of Harvey. They played with such heart and love for this city, it blew me away. They lifted this city from the rubble and reminded us that we can over come this because we are Houston. We came together to help neighbors and strangers a like, we showed the world what being a Texan means.
I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart for giving us all a reason to cheer and hope. While we watched from our homes with no walls, cheering on our boys, they achieved what everyone else in the world didn't think they could, but they did!!! They did it for US, for HOUSTON!!!!
Thank you!!!! Thank you for showing the rest of the world that we are HOUSTON STRONG!!!!
