During times of distress bags of sand abound. Apt and able communities contribute to a collective cause of forming a protective hedge in an effort to protect critical areas. We are seeing this daily in response to extreme weather events, civil unrest, and war. These bags operate as a protective barrier against harmful assault from both natural and manmade threats. They signal a community’s collective resolve. And they symbolize hope for the future.
