Over the last two weeks Americans have seen the worst in partisan politics, but the government shutdown has also triggered the generosity of ordinary citizens.
Holy One, we thank you for the Good Samaritans. For the selfless people who see the needs of the downtrodden and act quickly to provide whatever they can – be it $10 million or 10 jars of baby food. Thank you for reminding us that though our government let us down, the kindness and generosity of others continued on.
