I'm sorry to say, this post will have nothing to do with writing. I have been away from this blog for about 2 weeks now. The first week I couldn't find anything to say, and this week my state/my hometown was hit too hard by Hurricane Sandy.
Much of it has been talked about on the news, but focused on New York City and New Jersey. While NYC was hit hard, Jersey was hit a lot harder. However there are many other parts of New York that has been devastated. Breezey Point has burned down, Broad Channel has been flooded out and destroyed, Howard Beach has been flooded and many businesses condemed, and the South Shore of Long Island has been turned upside down. Many lives will never be the same. They have lost everything; their homes, their clothes, their family members, businesses, and there are still millions of people without power and have to fight the cold nights without any heat.
This is a very bad time for New Yorkers and people of New Jersey. People are homeless, they have lost everything, people have no power, there's no gas, and there are people looting the destroyed and ruined areas. Everyone needs to pitch in to help others around them even if it's something little. Donate your time, clothes, or money to help the relief efforts.
