HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Earlier this week, an envelope bursting at the seams with love arrived at the ABC13 studios.
Within, we found that students from schools around the country had poured their hearts and souls into letters, cards and drawings to brighten the lives of Hurricane Harvey evacuees. Dozens of students and teachers sent cards expressing solidarity with the people of Houston and wishing us well as we pick up the pieces from Harvey.
"Friends in Texas, I felt really bad when I heard about the hurricane. What matters is that you guys are still living and I'm thankful for that," wrote Andrea from Colorado.
One of Andrea's classmates even invited displaced Texas students to come spend a semester in Colorado while families and schools in Houston work to rebuild.
"I hope this note makes you feel a little better, but we just want you to know that we are donating to your shelters in your area. God bless you," added a student from Georgia whose classmates decorated illustrations of hearts, animals, rainbows and the sun with inspirational bible verses.
"The class wants you to know that we care about you," said Charla, a teacher from Minnesota. "We hope your recovery has started and gets better each day."
Perhaps the most poignant was a heart-shaped card from another student that read simply, "Hugs for Houston! Houston will rock even through the hurricane."
How right you are!
