Default Devastating Images from the Bahamas

The images coming to light from the Bahamas is just heartbreaking. For all those that thought your day was in ruin because you could not play pickleball or golf, take time to reflect on how devastating their life has become. Prayers for all.

Nicely stated. Us Americans are extremely fortunate to have been born or migrated here. Many parts of the world have inhabitants who are one bad change of circumstance from a cruel end. Fortunately there are still many who will help them as long as the press and others care about these circumstances.

Ditto.

To ensure my donations make a difference and aren't mostly used to pay for admin costs, I use.... Charity Navigator (Click Here)

The early look at the devastation and hearing just a few of the residents stories...is horrific and utterly heartbreaking.

I want to join the comments and echo how heartbreaking it is. Here "we" tend to complain and criticize about 1st world problems that aren't problems at all. Last night a man in the Bahamas was interviewed and he told of watching his wife drown while their house destructed. When asked how he survived his answer was, he didn't know. I can't imagine even a bit what he and others are going through.

It's going to take years to recover, long after the network channels leave.


Pray the death toll does not climb.


Florida is/was blessed this time.

The photos I have seen show what I consider unbelievable damage. While I have never been their, my wife has, and indicated the devastation does not come close to the damage.

Been thinking all the thoughts today that I have read here. We can help them restore buildings but we can't restore the lives lost.

So very sad.
