R&B singer Carl Thomas was caught up in the extreme conditions of Hurricane Harvey. As the waters began rising in his Houston home, he says he had to rise to the challenge of staying peaceful and calm in order to talk to God and make decisions that would keep him and the large group of loved ones in his house safe. He recalls the fact that he saw crocodiles playing in the street, and explains why he had to resist the urge not to make this experience personal.

He talks about the current atmosphere in the United States, where it is so easy for us to be nasty to one of each other. But Hurricane Harvey, he explains, was an exercise in being selfless and loving one each other, and much bigger than a personal experience of just what was happening to him individually.
