Hurricane Harvey: Reflections of a Keyboard Warrior

Cajun Navy Red CrossThis is a first-person account by one of the volunteers who acted as a triage nurse, not only for medical help, but in coordinating rescue efforts for the Louisiana Cajun Navy. She is a longtime friend of mine, and she has been working tirelessly from her base of operations in South Carolina. She may be hundreds of miles away from the Texas disaster, but she has been an integral part of rescue communications since day one of Hurricane Harvey.

Reflections of a Keyboard Warrior:

Reflection on this past week. It’s been wide open, 18-20 hours per day for many of us. Most juggling work and volunteer hours. Some with small children they had to find time for as well. Non-stop multiple group chats with thousands of messages per day in each.

People that have never met before this week working side by side virtually just to save one more. Not one complaint, not one argument. Strangers comforting the ones that are trying to comfort victims. The emotional hell of checking in every hour  on the victims to make sure they are still safe. Saving many losing a few.

How deeply you can be affected by people you’ve never met in person. Long term bonds being made. Cries for help when no one’s there to hear except you. Being that one human voice that’s keeping them connected to the world. Praying your call doesn’t drop, fearing no one will answer the line when you call back. Moving as fast as possible because you know it’s a race for life.

Tears of sadness, tears of joy sometimes within minutes of each other. Children clinging to drowned parents. Being stuck in a home with an elderly parent that’s passed away because there was no 911. People in wheelchairs sitting in chest high rising waters. A country pulling together to help perfect strangers. That s been my past week along with hundreds of others most of which I’ve never met, but our hearts have.

Thank you *CHIND members, Cajun Navy, and countless other groups and individuals that have made the world a better place by being your brother’s keeper.

Denice Freeman is my information source for the articles I have published relating to the relief efforts by the Louisiana Cajun Navy. The next time you see someone bashing the militia, think of Denice.

[Editor’s note: Denice was aldo the source for this article regarding the melee in Charlottesville.]

III% is a generic term for all members of the militias in America. She is exemplary of all militia members in this country, whose motto is to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, both foreign and domestic. To them, it is a sacred oath and responsibility they do not take lightly, anymore than they take lightly the need to protect their communities from natural or man-made disasters. The article I published yesterday received over 80K “Likes” on Facebook because of over 4K “Shares.” It never would have happened if Denice hadn’t given me the information.

Please support the relief efforts any way you can. Please donate to the Louisiana Cajun Navy Relief Fund via PayPal, and thank you for your support!
