By the time you read this, hopefully any power you may have lost will have been restored and any damages caused by Hurricane Sandy will have either been fixed or on the way to arriving at that state. While those who had the misfortune of being in the path of destruction wrought on Staten Island, the Jersey shore and the south shore of Long Island running from Brooklyn all the way out east have oftentimes been only left with the clothes on their backs, the response of donated time, money and supplies has been a reaffirmation of people’s inherent good in times of strife and struggle. Closer to home it’s been those who toil for law enforcement, the fire department, emergency services and public works who have been instrumental in helping residents get through this catastrophe in as safe and expedient a manner as possible. This kind of selflessness and determination is what is going to get everyone through this particularly difficult time in the end.
