We still have not returned to school, many remain without power and even worse, have lost their homes.  There have been so many stories of people helping people.  It’s kind of amazing.  This story is really touching.  But today I voted…side by side with my 18 year old daughter!


  • Lynne

    I was so relieved to see your post pop up on my sidebar!
    You are all in my thoughts and prayers, every day!

    Good to hear you and your family are doing okay. My daughter at SHU was very lucky and only had to deal with no power for a few days. She was fortunate that one of her sorority sister’s apartments had electricity throughout the entire storm. She was able to take hot showers and pass the time watching t.v. and studying. Their school did an amazing job keeping us informed through Twitter (gotta love social media) and made sure the kids had food, water and a place to charge their phones and computers.

    It is so sad to see places full of such history and beauty now destroyed, but it is wonderful to see stories like the one you posted of people’s generosity and support for those in need.

    Stay strong!
