More words about Nashville’s resilience in the face of catastrophic flooding, from Patten Fuqua, who wrote that now-famous blog entry. In this new piece, he writes:

The response to my piece has been amazing, humbling, shocking and overwhelming. It’s merely a hockey blog…and my columns probably usually have trouble reaching 100 hits. I’m not claiming to be a great writer or even a good writer. I’m just the messenger – the important part was the message. I just happened to be the one to say it.
Sometimes disasters have ways of tearing communities apart, sometimes they have ways of binding communities together. In the case of the Nashville floods, the community came together in a way that few could have imagined.
