In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the Jersey Shore as well as the surrounding areas have been left in a state of utter destruction. My hometown, Point Pleasant, has lost so much. My family evacuated early Monday as low tide was showing only a little of what was to come. My family and friends are safe and that is all that matters. My home was lucky and did not suffer any damage. This cannot be said for others. My heart aches for those who have lost loves ones, homes, and memories.
On the other hand, I am so happy to see how much people have come together in this time of shock as well as recovery. Together we are Jersey Strong.
