Day 1 of the New Year.

Interesting Title! It sort of feels like we are starting again. New kids ,new families! Wow!
I mean we have nothing to complain about, as far as I know we are lucky out here and the school is still functioning. What I have witnessed is the way some people are handling it.
Some have thrown themselves into rescue and started collecting, digging, transporting doing everything in there power to be a part of it and to contribute. Some have pulled their families closer worrying about what is going to happen next. Some have focussed internally and are looking at things and how it relates solely to them. All very normal, very valid ways of dealing with and disaster.
There are days I pretend I am okay too:)
There will be a number of changes expected and the expected changes will continue to change constantly.
