August 28, 2018: Friendship Despite the Challenges

My heart continues to break for Puerto Rico. A report came out this week that the death toll from Hurricane Maria is much higher than originally reported. It didn’t come as a surprise to me, since a storm of that magnitude would make a huge impact. What saddens me is the lack of attention Puerto Rico is currently receiving. There are thousands of residents still suffering from lack of power, and our government pays minimal attention.

While this saddening report come to the surface, I continue to speak with my close friend from Puerto Rico about her attending my wedding next year. She is very excited about the event, and is doing whatever possible to attend next summer. We go back and forth from taking about my upcoming wedding to reflecting on our high school days. We could go on forever.
