Chosen Words

Thursday, November 8, 2012 by D.J. HAUSMAN-HILL Special to The Press in Opinion

Sandy...

a nickname for my sister

Now a historic storm

The "perfect storm"

Brought about by climate change

Millions of our citizens affected....

by storm surge or flooding

Loss of electrical power

Disruption

Displacement

Some lost their lives

Others lost everything...

except relationships

Community comes together at such times

...times of crisis

Community...

that is what enables us to move on...

Even on an island...a sandy island

we are not alone

And God is with us...

providing support from others

Others who do his work

This is our consolation...

after the storm

This storm we call...

Sandy
