Being Part of Something Special

CNN is reporting that in the aftermath of hurricane Ike, “Starbucks stores have…turned out to be places where people can get together to share information and comfort each other.”

Reading that reminded me of an anecdote a friend from San Diego shared with me last year when wildfires were raging north of L.A., in Orange County and San Diego.

A customer came into the Starbucks store he manages and exclaimed in thanksgiving: “Firemen; Policemen; Post Office and you guys!”

That’s being part of something special.
