Imagine your house, loved one, or all of your personal possessions taken away from you in the blink of an eye. Imagine not having clean water, electricity, heat, or food for weeks at a time. This description doesn't sound like it would be somewhere in America or even New York City but this is whats happening RIGHT NOW for those affected by Superstorm Sandy, especially Staten Island, New York. I was born, raised, and currently live on Staten Island and I have personally seen and help clean the destruction that has happened to my hometown. Thousands of people who live here all year round for decades at a time just got their lives completely destroyed.
