Arise.

“Hold on to the world we all remember fighting for.
There’s still strength left in us yet.
Hold on to the world we all remember dying for.
There’s still hope left in it yet.”
Arise by Flyleaf

Waking up yesterday morning, not really caring about how bad this Frankenstorm would get, but that all changed when I started reading the Facebook posts of different people sharing news of the storm around New York City and New Jersey. Seeing the pictures throughout the day of the clouds and flooding around NYC. I was concerned about my friends and their families living over there. I wasn’t that much of a prude. All it did yesterday was get very windy, however, not as windy as it got over there. It was much worse there than it was here. I tried to stay on a positive side, hoping God would watch over everybody there. Our satellites were acting up last night, but I was proud of myself because I hardly complained because I know they have no power over there. Two things that made me angry though. That big crane on a skyscraper in New York City. Everybody has been talking about this storm and Hurricane Sandy for almost a week now, but the crane looked like it could very well break at any moment and drop on another nearby building and kill a bunch of people who chose to stay in that other building. That leads to my other thing I didn’t like was people were told, this storm might get bad, but you still stayed around to be brave? That’s not bravery, that’s just being stupid. That’s all I’m going to say about that though.

It is 9am here and I awoke to a gloomy day. Which is fine, but I’m hoping it won’t be so bad as it was yesterday. I can deal with the rain, but storms altogether, not a fan of them. It is the aftermath of a strong storm that made its way our way. I watched Cities Of The Underworld two days before yesterday, and it was about New Orleans years after Hurricane Katrina. I hope the east coast doesn’t have to go through what the people in New Orleans had to go through. I’ve seen a few pictures of people just peeking out their doors to see how bad it looks outside. To see streets of New York City flooded is mind-blowing. I hope everything recovers and the flooding decreases. Everything will bounce back and go back to normal. Everybody’s just going to have to be patient. God can work wonders and if he can help with the rebuilding of New Orleans, then he can help with the cities and towns effected by Hurricane Sandy. Everybody’s just going to need prayers. I used a song by Flyleaf, called “Arise” and I thought the chorus would be a good to start out this post. I think it works with what’s going on, on the east coast.
