The east coast, in particular the Carolina's, are in for a hard few weeks.  At the time I'm writing this, four lives are known to be lost as a result of hurricane Florence. Tens of thousands will be without power for days to weeks.

I want to get this post out before the inevitable politicization begins.  However the aftermath of a disaster is handled, the conversation will quickly shift from the talks of the victims to political complaints.  I will do my best to keep my thoughts and concerns on the victims and their situation instead of getting sucked in to debates about the President, FEMA, etc.

In the meanwhile, I pray that my family, friends an fellow citizens come out of this healthy and that their lives are returned to normal as soon as possible.  You will undoubtedly see many ways to support relief efforts in the coming days, but for the Red Cross fans, here is a link to donate.
