PD GATOR HARRISON said: “I just can’t help thinking, 'This could’ve been me, this could’ve been my family, and who would have been there for me?' I’ve been blessed and I want to be a blessing for my NASHVILLE neighbors in need. And obviously I’m not alone. Hey, we’re the Volunteer State; if it happens to one of us, it happens to sll of us. What’s incredible to me, is how the size of TN’ s heart has puddled this flood.”
