helping hands

being on the west coast and my only connection to anyone who was effected by Sandy is my cousin, i haven't really felt its significance. my cousin lives in manhattan but thankfully she left days before the hurricane hit. her apartment didn't suffer any damage and never even lost power. 
after seeing the video below, i realized how devastating the hurricane really was and still is. i'm so grateful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and for helping hands. a few years ago, sarai and i went with our youth group to centrailia, washington where there had been a big flood that destroyed a lot of homes. we wore our "helping hands" shirts and got to work. it was one of those experiences that will impact you forever.
this video is a perfect representation to what the gospel is all about and left me inspired.
