Watching the news coverage of Sandy, I can’t stop thinking, “It’s all gone”. Its one thing when its in Florida or Louisiana, but being on the East Coast, its just so much more real. Now, don’t get me wrong, any disaster is horrible, but seeing this, these are places I know, places I’ve been! I just can’t believe all this devastation and destruction was caused by one storm.
I can’t help but flash back to the Perfect Storm. Seeing the movie, I always thought that it wasn’t totally real, that it had been dramatized. Now, I realize how real, and terrible it really was. People’s homes are gone, all their memories washed away in one night. I can’t imagine what that must be like. These people have lost everything and I feel that we must help. The Red Cross and Salvation Army are doing their best to help everyone in need but they need our help (money, donations, patience) to do their job. Even if you can’t donate, keep the storm victims in your prayers. I know I will.
