We’ve barely gotten over the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey, and we’ve been hit by yet another enormous storm.

Hurricane Irma made landfall in the Caribbean before hitting Florida, then quickly swept away entire towns. It destroyed the lives of thousands of people.

The recent storms have left cities and homes in ruins, and with all the horrible things that have happened, it’s hard to stay positive.

In times like these, it’s important to look for the helpers, the people who go out of their way to lend a hand to people in need.

There have been tons of people all over the country sending support to the hurricane victims, but nobody has stepped up quite like police officers and other first responders, even those who live far from the path of destruction.

Recently, Miranda Browning, a nurse, was driving home with her husband when she noticed traffic up ahead. That’s when she realized that all the cars had flashing blue lights. It was a convoy of game wardens, all the way from Arkansas, heading toward the hardest hit areas to help out.

When she realized all the traffic was in service to a good cause, she was at a loss for words.

It is the Arkansas Game & Fish officers equipped with boats, atv’s, fuel, coolers etc.

There were over 30 trucks in a row, all with lights on, on their way to help.

I know there are tons of organizations lending helping hands but it just fills my heart to witness one!

They don’t know what they’re going to find once there, but I know for sure, these people are a God send & will be much appreciated.

May the Lord watch over these people & keep them safe!

We all may have different views, but one thing is for certain, we are ONE NATION UNDER GOD.
