It’s hard to believe it has been 52 days since Hurricane Maria made landfall on the island of Puerto Rico with Category 4 winds. The hurricane was so large it covered the island leaving no area untouched by its destructive force. Puerto Ricans are in survival mode and spend hours each day procuring basic needs like clean water and food.
I am donating the proceeds of Exodus (Clare Thibodeaux Series, Book 1) from October through November to help in the Hurricane Maria relief efforts, and I encourage my readers to consider helping by donating through the various charities and relief funds to help with our fellow citizens on the long road to recovery. ~ Kate
My DIL — a Navy veteran — volunteered to help the homeless at the Skidrow Carnival In LA. She met many amazing people that day including Coach Ron. Check out the video below.
If you have read one of my earlier posts – Books and Life – I wrote about a summer I spent in Newtown, CT. My cousins grew up in Newtown. My aunt taught in an area elementary school for many years. Newtown is an important part of my families’ history. The pain of Sandy Hook is their pain, as well.
The events of that horrendous day made the nation weep. It is important for us to remember and to bring change, so we won’t have to continue to watch other communities and families torn apart.
In early October, ‘Newtown’ will be released in theaters. I’m going to see it so I can acknowledge the bravery, sacrifice and heartache felt by this small community. I hope you will join me in supporting this documentary film.
