All things considered we must be thankful and count ourselves blessed, lucky and fortunate. We, Big Blue that is, got off lightly as did most of our islands.
The carnage and devastation suffered by our Southern neighbours is by no means beyond the realms of comprehension when looking around our own less fortunate neighborhoods. However, the sheer scale of hurricanes Irma and Maria’s swift, destructive and warlike forces are barely believable. We know it could so easily have been us. 🙏🏽
Here, at home there are many that have suffered similar fates, losing everything with those in Grand Turk and South Caicos especially, hardest hit.
This most active hurricane season is not yet over by any stretch but as the sun begins to shine again and as Maria heads off past the horizon perhaps now the #turksandcaicos can get back to the very real and serious business to continue clearing up while picking up the pieces together.
A winding road lies ahead but we do have excellent infrastructure, public services and supportive government here enabling us to bounce back quickly and to help communities get back on track with all the major service businesses are aiming to be ready come October and November.
As we knuckle down to be ready to share more adventures with our extended Big Blue family this season, it is important that we be grateful for the simple things in life while offering a prayer to those who have really suffered this September. They really have a long, long road ahead. #Barbuda #BVI #Dominica #Puertorico #Cuba #Stmartin #Guadeloupe #Martinique and #Mexico
