Remembering the Quake


    The quake had brought out the best in us

    Neighbor helping neighbor, in God we trust

    So much kindness and all this good feeling

    Had warmed up my heart, and sent my head reeling

    I said “people are nice” as I got on the freeway

    I moved over a lane to give a guy leeway

    My faith was restored, no more would I scoff

    When he gave me the finger and cut me right off!
