But with everything that Sandy took away, she also gave us something.
Sandy made us innovative such as how to stay warm without heat, prepare that morning cup of coffee and cook meals without power.
She showed us how to live without internet access and television.
She brought people together.
She reminded us to appreciate the everyday conveniences of life.
She taught us not to take anything or anyone for granted.
She showed us that it is possible to rebuild in the midst of destruction.
She made us realize that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Sandy taught us that while some of us have moved on, others have not.
Simply put, Sandy humbled us.
HOME SWEET HOME
Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home;
A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there,
Which seek thro' the world, is ne'er met elsewhere.
Sweet, sweet home!
There's no place like home.
There's no place like home!
Home Sweet Home was written by American lyricist John Howard Payne and English composer Sir Henry Bishop for an opera that was first produced in London in 1823. The song became hugely popular throughout the United States, and was a favorite of soldiers during the Civil War.
