Former President George W. Bush offered words of support and comfort to the people of Texas while visiting a Southern Methodist University football practice on Tuesday.

As Houston and the surrounding areas deal with catastrophic flooding in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Bush said the "days are dark now," but they're going to get better.

"I know there's some people from Houston here and the Houston area, and I know you're going through a really tough time," Bush told the team. "Just know that there will be a lot of people that are going to help the people down there. A lot."

"Right now they're recovering, and so the key thing on the recovery is to keep people safe," he continued. "And then it's going to be rebuilding. And if you're from that area, you'll be amazed at the people that come down there to help. All kinds of people."
