“It’s just a house,” one man said in the video posted by ESPN’s Sports Center Monday. “It can be rebuilt. Our lives can be rebuilt.”
His words encapsulate the attitude and resilience that continues to be displayed by Houston residents in the aftermath of Harvey’s havoc. The clip above shows several people who lost their homes trying to come to grips with what happened, and find a way to move forward.
Houston Texans player J.J. Watt has created a fundraiser to help people like them. So far, he has raised almost $20 million as of Tuesday.
Watt pledged he will do all he can to stretch the money raised and put it where its needed the most; every dollar will go to the recovery effort.
