Watching the images of New York City on television last night and this morning, it all seemed like something out of a post-apocalyptic science-fiction movie: subways flooded, tunnels filled with rushing water, cars submerged on 14th Street, half of Manhattan in darkness. But it’s not a movie, it’s all-too real, all-too heartbreaking. As I'm sure you know, NYC is just one piece of the jigsaw puzzle, the devastation Sandy left in her wake is widespread. (We were lucky here in my neck of upstate New York: there was rain and some seriously spooky wind, but no major damage. We didn’t even lose power. And for that I am profoundly grateful.)
Here’s a link to the Red Cross site for those of you able to donate something to help with disaster relief. If you can’t afford it—and in these tough economic times, that’s understandable—there’s always the power of a heartfelt prayer.
