As we go about our busy lives during the holidays, it's my hope that we can also stop to consider the people whose lives remain in turmoil. The families affected by Hurricane Sandy were some of this country's most vulnerable.
In the twilight hours of a random Monday morning I suddenly bolted awake. I jostled Boyfriend who peacefully slumbered beside me. Then with my eyes still closed I groggily said to him: "I wanna drive a truck full of supplies to New York for the Sandy victims."
