"In the recent weeks, the city of @houston and #Texas have given an object lesson in the Beatitudes to the whole world. Part of the reason for that has to do with people like Sgt. Steve who always lived those Beatitudes." - Daniel Cardinal DiNardo // A devout Catholic, @houstonpolice Sgt. Steve Perez was laid to rest Sept. 13. It was a beautiful, sobering and emotional morning. The entire city, even the sky, seemed to take a deep sigh.
In the dark Sunday morning hours of Harvey's chaos, he drove into high water on his way to work. There, "God was there to catch him," HPD chief Art Acevedo said.
May perpetual light shine upon you, Sgt. Perez, and all the dear departed from #Harvey and #Irma .

It's possible that the taking of this picture involved climbing through a locked gate and an unexpected confrontation with law enforcement. But at least the floodwater's down, right? #justtakingpicturesofficer

We request that attendees bring an unopened box of feminine hygiene products or adult diapers to assist displaced women in the greater fifth ward. ➡️ For tickets, please visit our profile link. ⬅️ Funds raised at this dinner will be donated to Trinity Gardens Church of Christ, a 501(c)(3) organization and distribution center of Hurricane Harvey relief supplies for greater Northeast Houston. Donations will be targeted towards women and single mothers in the Trinity Gardens, Kashmere Gardens and greater Fifth Ward communities.
We are an organization uniting women chefs, hospitality professionals, entrepreneurs, physicians, scientists and artists.
We raise community awareness and funds in support of women's health.
Our flagship event features our city's most popular mixologists and up-and-coming culinary stars preparing cocktails and small bites, followed by a three-course dinner by some of the biggest names of Houston's restaurant scene. Staffed by an all-volunteer brigade of women, including physicians, scientist and artists as 'sous-chefs', IHWSH highlights the diverse and united support for access to affordable women's health care that is present in the heart of Texas. The date of this dinner is TBD, with more details to come in late 2017.

Earlier this month, the Lone Star Flight Museum opened to the public! To read my adventures upon a WWII Warbird and get a sneak peak into the museum, click the link in bio! I went on an hour plane ride around Galveston and was crawling around (literally hands and knees) from the nose to the tail of a 1942 plane. IT WAS INSANE! ✈️✈️ Check out the museum's warbird collection and more cool planes--like this Continental jet--when you go! 💙A
