We’re okay. And if you’re reading this, I hope you are, too.

I don’t want to downplay the impact of the storm at all. Millions are without power. People have died. The largest city in the Western world is oddly silent and seemingly empty.

Yet, the storm is moving on. It does not linger and will not last forever.

Human history has shown that we are a resilient species. We grow, change, adapt, and survive. This goes for the species in general as well as the individual. In the course of our brief lives, we weather all sorts of storms, and crises, and disasters, and loss.

I hope that, as you read this, you and your loved ones continue to stay safe, your property remains relatively undamaged, and remember that even if you can’t see it, the sun is still shining, and it will rise again strong and clear when the darkness has passed.
