"Not long after I moved to Stillwater, neighbors called me to help sandbag the river against spring flooding. I was honored to help my town, and I made new friends. As a planet facing climate change, we're in a sandbag moment. We've got to come together, and quickly. But there's so much good that's possible if we will." ~ Buff
