"Dear Hurricane Matthew, while you disrupted life as we know it in our age of technological advancement, having no power for the last three days gave me an appreciation for the simply things in life we take for granted, like having power and hot water, and allowed, or should I say made, me take quiet reflection on life in candlelight when the sun went down as I snuggled into many layers to stay warm. While you shut down our city, tore up the land, soaked us with over 200 ml of rain, we survived in spite of your damage. While nature is a beautiful reminder of all the marvels in life, it is also a force greater than we can imagine proving we are but a mere existence amongst its great divide."
