I talk to Kiara and Makayla about Hurricane Sandy, they were by my side through the whole thing… except for picture taking on the Long Island Sound! We discuss the possible, the inevitable, the aftermath. They sometimes even see me shed a tear. I can’t help but be devastated, Our Island will be forever changed! The gas crisis, now that’s like a fun game to them! Ha! So smart, yet still children! They make the best of everything while, of course Mom does her best at keeping certain realities shaded.
The Ladies have given their time to helping http://www.ladieswithamission.wordpress.com Carrying cases of water out of “big blue”….. Champions! Fighters!!! I want them to utilize this time changing event to better themselves, to better their generation. They attempt to show sympathy to a dear friend as I tell them she lost her home to the Hurricane and to a massive fire. Breezy Point will forever change, they still find a way to keep sparkle in their eyes.
Yet, there is so much warmth amongst the cold snow, the recent nor’easter, no electric, no home. I came across a cry for HELP from the New York Aquarium in Brooklyn earlier. The Ladies and I have been there! It was such a fun day we had last year! Knowing how much the girls love animals and yearn to become veterinarians, I grow an immediate attachment to the aquariums needs and instantly think of the film Dolphin Tale!
It’s apparent to me that there are children that would Kill to have a chance to help the animals. I know my girls would LOVE to have the chance! Now it’s just a matter of convincing the NY Aquarium that my daughters have the skill and passion to Help! 🙂
I will keep an eye out for that picture of us from last year, but for now I will leave you with a shot I took of Shoreham Village Beach in Shoreham, NY. Check out the 8ft waves on the Long Island Sound. Incredible but devastating!
