When we traveled the island after Maria, we saw victims of a natural disaster and the tragedy was compounded by the slow and limited emergency response. Puerto Ricans are very proud people, but they were humbled when our aid delivered dignity to silent, ordinary people in pain. We made several cash donations to people in need and it represented hope. All the recipients were strangers, such as selecting at random an elderly lady with an umbrella and a chair at the end of a very long FEMA line to get food. The positive impact of generous donations from every edge are many. There are so many stories that need to be told, so here is a place for them to be.
