Mayor Of San Juan Fights Tears Talking About Hurricane Destruction
We’ve seen far more natural tragedies over the last month than we ever care to see again.
While many in the U.S. mainland are trying to put their lives back together following Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, folks in Mexico are still in recovery from the massive earthquake, and to see the loss of life and property in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria is beyond heartbreaking. It is reported that it could take 6 months to even get electricity back to the beloved island.
The entire Caribbean has been absolutely decimated and major, major, MAJOR recovery efforts are needed just to to BEGIN the process of finding a way to salvage the lands.
Recently San Juan, Puerto Rico mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz couldn’t suppress the emotions that she is feeling while watching her people suffer.
If you can spare it, please make a donation to reputable foundations and organizations that are aiding in the caribbean recovery. Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens but more importantly they are humans in desperate need of assistance.
