Hurricane Sandy has been a catastrophic storm but there is one positive thing that I can say about it…It has brought out the best in many people.
We’ve been reading about the BIG heroes, the men and women who risk their lives to save a person from drowning or being stranded.
The little simple acts of kindness may not be making national headlines but they also deserve to be acknowledged.
Neighbors have helped each other prepare for the storm, come to each others rescue, sharing food, supplies and even opening their homes to one another.
On my local news this morning,I smiled as I saw people in my area packing up trucks to bring supplies to the devastated areas up north. Regular folks who are leaving their families, their jobs and the comfort and warmth of their homes to do good deeds for strangers.
With so much negativity from the Presidential election permeating the news these last few months, a devastating hurricane has turned our attention to something that we rarely get a chance to hear about and have almost forgotten exists….the human side of people.
Sometimes it takes a Sandy to remind us….
