Hurricane Sandy has come and gone leaving a trail of destruction and devastation behind. Millions were in one way or the other affected by her fury. She unleashed her anger in the Caribbean them moved on to our area uprooting and moving anything that stood in her way.
For many it was a humbling an eye-opening experience. A valuable lesson can be learned from all of this. It is important not to take hurricane warnings lightly. Some people were reluctant to evacuate when asked to do so because they wanted to stay to safeguard their homes. People must understand there is nothing they can do to control nature and there is no point in staying when you might not live to occupy that house. There are times when we have to forget about materialistic things and instead focus on staying alive. A few learned this lesson the hard way. I pray that others will take heed so these mistakes will not be repeated in the future.
The months ahead is not going to be easy. Thousands have lost homes and property, but there is life and as long as there is life there is hope. It is not going to be easy but in time they will recover, they shall rise again. We all have to give thanks to God because it could have been worse.
