Today I am thankful for all of the men and women that are working to help the Northeast rebuild after Hurricane Sandy. Being from Connecticut we weren’t hit as hard as NJ and NY but we were out of power for 6 days. I saw trucks from as far away as Quebec in our town working to restore electricity. These people left their homes, families and are working long hours just to be criticized for “taking too long.” I hear people complaining in the local deli and all I can think is “Calm down, its a blackout not the end of the world.” Think of the people on the Jersey Coast…
That brings me to my second point. I’m also thankful I still have my home and my family is unharmed. Seeing pictures of the devastation so close to home is a call to action. Salvation Army locations in the hardest hit areas need our donations. These are the towns that need our help the most:
