I'm so heart-broken I had to cry
Wednesday, October 31, 2012
As everyone knows hurricane Sandy, along with the storm that raged from the northwest, wrecked mass destruction along the east coast of the United States. I have tried to keep abreast of what has happened since I am from the Jersey Shore and have friends and family still in New Jersey. This morning I saw pictures of the town where I spent my high school years. There is hardly anything left of this strip of land and what is left is under water. Houses near a public beach down the street were destroyed in a natural gas fire. The town where I grew up had major damage. I saw pictures of boats from dry dock were in the middle of major roads covered by water or sitting on railroad tracks.
I looked at all those pictures and just sat and cried.
It's all gone.
I remember listening to stories growing up of a time when the bay met the ocean and the peninsula was covered with water. The storms that struck the Jersey Shore this week surpassed that storm.
I wasn't that upset when my oldest moved to Florida nor when my youngest had his third shoulder surgery. (They are both doing well.)
I guess I am posting this blog to let all you wonderful SparkPeople in the Northeast know that I am thinking about you and praying for you. And to let everyone else know that we all face tough times and I pray to God that we will all get through it.
