As daylight is hitting the islands, and were really getting a sense of how bad this all is…
I dont know what to say. Ive never been in war, but the devastation, the peoples faces in a place I know by heart have left me feeling helpless. Its total devastation.
These are people who live off the sea, who depend on it. They live right there, and its gone. Most everyones displaced. They are frightened, confused, and they dont know where help is going to come from. Those lives have changed and will never be the same. Those small islands are hard to get to and they rely on each other to get through what life hands them. For all of them, though, theyve been where Ive leaned for emotional and creative support for fifteen years because they are so generous.
We're going to help. I want to enlist my friends to figure out the best ways to make a difference, to help in whatever ways, small or larger, that we can. Im blessed with so many great people… Were already talking, trying to figure out how to get in there. And I know the No Shoes Nation is mighty. Theyve dug in before and made a difference. I have a feeling once we have our plans in the place, theyll be there again.
Pray/send good thoughts to everyone whos been affected or is in the path of Hurricane Irma. This is unlike anything theyve ever seen from St Maartens to St Barths to Puerto Rico then the Caribbean and onto Key West.
Be safe. Tell someone how much you care. Remember to Spread the Love.
