My brother used to live in Brooklyn and I always go down to DUMBO to walk around when I am in town….my thoughts went to this little carousel….while I know it isn’t someone’s home..It is still a piece of history and I am glad to hear it survived. Let’s pray the rest of the city can be as strong as this little gem and get back on it’s feet soon.

The photos of devastation and the stories of simple kindness have brought me back to the days of Hurricane Katrina. Seven years later and we are still recovering emotionally and physically. Our hearts go out to all of those impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

Thoughts are with you.

majesty of life. When we tell those stories we tell blessings.

We have literally been lifted up by the prayers and service of others. Sometimes tragic events occur and we are reminded just how many people love us, support us and want the best for us.

I had just learned of it, and had planned to take the family there after the weather warms back up. Such happy news!

It’s now been over a week, and my street is still without power. Each day we hear of more and more friends getting power back, so I know it will happen. The mornings are tough, though. Waking up to such darkness and the COLD is not the way to start off the day, and I’ve found myself snapping at the kids more than normal. But this isn’t normal – they haven’t had school for over a week, there’s no schedule. I’m hoping we get power back before the Nor’easter that is supposed to hit, just to enjoy using my oven for a day or so.

People all around are offering their homes to anyone in need, and on FB everyone has been sharing locations of gas stations with short lines (I think that insanity has mostly passed by now). I think most people know There but by the grace of God, so we all do what we can to ease someone’s pain.

Writing from the Gulf Coast we’ve faced hurricanes and been without power for weeks and know that even in that situation we were some of the lucky ones. Our thoughts are with everyone on the East Coast. Hold on to those symbols of perseverance, they’ll get you through!

We are in contact almost everyday. I´m really worried, but I´m so glad they are okay!

So heartbreaking, but so hopeful at the same time. Thinking of all of the people in outer boroughs who are hurting (as well as those in lower Manhattan). We only lost power for a day so are feeling very lucky.

It was originally in Youngstown at Idora Park. So glad to see it has withstood this tragic storm and gives some hope! I have fond memories of it!

Recovery will be a long and difficult process, but meeting floods of people who want to help makes me so hopeful that we will do it.

The sentiments were similar to New york. so many people got out and worked, gave out drinks and food to workers… within a weekend 1000s of places had been cleared. Of course there is still a few ongoing problems but the reach of humanity was amazing. Maybe because I lived in the middle of it (the city) but didnt experience any physical problems (no flooding or loss of electricity etc) I almost felt like the flood was a blessing. I love people rising to the occasion in a time of need. My husband spent 5 days at our church organizing relief groups of up to 300 people going out and cleaning up. I was at home with my four kids but it was a marvellous thing to behold.

blessings to all those suffering in new york.
