A while ago, I was researching Farm Aid. Actually, I was researching Neil Young, which took me to Farm Aide. Some how I ended up on this site: www.farmrescue.org
It is a site that helps farmers in need. If they are trying to plant or harvest, people come and help. Volunteers. To save these family farms. Some of these farms have been in the family for 5 generations. Someone gets sick or hurt and these volunteers come in and save the day.
This site is a wonderful place to visit. It shows that there are people out there who really want to make a difference. To save a family in need.
The reason I am writing about this is because it was in an article the the paper today. I went back to the site to check it out. It made me cry to see how grateful these people were for the great kindness that saved their farms.
It is the American farms that helped to build this great nation. The kindness of neighbors. Communities banding together to make life better for all concerned. It gives me hope for the future.
