Perseverance & Strength After Sandy

Manhattan After Sandy

I am full of power, strength, and determination. Nothing I face will be too much for me. I will overcome every obstacle, outlast every challenge, and come through every difficulty better off than I was before.

As the East Coast recovers from Hurricane Sandy and New York City, our home, begins to return to normalcy, we can’t help but be reminded of what is truly important: your health, your safety and the well-being of your family and friends. This country has come together to support everyone who was affected by the disaster, with Mayor Bloomberg dedicating the Nov. 4 New York Marathon to the victims of the hurricane, and celebrities like Sting and Christina Aguilera coming out to raise money and perform at the Nov. 2 Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together telethon at the Rockefeller Plaza. New Yorkers have come together in amazing ways, strangers helping strangers by giving out food, sharing power, and keeping each other informed on the latest updates. Our thoughts go out to everyone whose life has been touched by Hurricane Sandy. -Jesse & the VT Team
