Two weeks ago Hurricane Maria delivered a devastating blow to Puerto Rico, a Caribbean island and unincorporated U.S. territory. These people are our fellow Americans.
Before the storm it was a picturesque landscape of mountains, waterfalls and the El Yunque tropical rainforest. In San Juan, the capital and largest city, the Isla Verde area is known for its hotel strip, beach bars and casinos. Its Old San Juan neighborhood featured colorful Spanish colonial buildings, El Morr, La Fortaleza, and massive, centuries-old fortresses.
I hope those in need are aided and it’s soon restored to its beauty.
For those who have lived through a natural disaster have no idea what it’s like. The simplest things you take for granted are no longer available.
