We are very fortunate to have ridden out the storm with relatively little damage. But following along on Twitter last night for real time updates, it was clear many of you did not. And many of you were in the thick of things, in the hospitals and on the streets, responding to the crisis and those in need. Let me tell you, that fact was not missed:
There were countless messages like this on Twitter–and still more continuing to be sent out. So let me add my voice to those: thank you to everyone who was working last night. To those of you who were scheduled to be there and those of you who volunteered to go out in the storm because you just wanted to help. In the emergency departments, on the squads, wherever you were in the system, thank you. And to those of you still in the path of Sandy, those of you awaiting several feet of snow or torrential rain and wind, please take care of yourselves and each other. Stay safe, stay warm.
(You didn’t need to be a traditional first responder to make a meaningful difference as one last night. Need proof? Check out Mayor (of Newark, NJ) Cory Booker’s twitter feed last night. It’s awesome.)
