We should offer support for Harvey victims

The original editorial, “Lend a hand to those affected by Hurricane Harvey,” was published on Sept. 4.

In the past two weeks, Hurricane Harvey has affected our loved ones in the Houston area and here at Baylor University. As we continue to pray, support and donate to the survivors of Harvey, our community should extend those blessings toward the potential victims of Hurricane Irma, Jose and Katia.

Although the majority of those affected are not in the United States, there are still innocent men, women and children who deserve help from a Christian community like Baylor.

The countries in the path of Irma are not as large in land size or as fortunate to have an abundance of resources for hurricane relief.

Let our community be one of the first to reach out to these nations and provide prayer and donations.

I know Baylor is an outstanding community ,and it is our time to come together to help those in need.

We can provide faith, love, donations and prayer. Let us live up to the name Baylor and continue to be a vessel of love and support!
