Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

I received a peanutbutter and jelly sandwich and a bottle of water from a van yesterday afternoon [View all]

While I was working to put our home back together my local government employees drove by offering food and water to people in my neighborhood where Sandy's storm surge reached 9+ feet.

I was hungry while working so I accepted a sandwich and a bottle of water. I was offered a whole case of water and other nonperishable food - I declined and accepted only what I needed at the moment.

I nearly cried, I was so happy that someone gave a shit.

I guess I got a bit of my "free stuff."

Thank you "collectivists!"
