Visiting St. Thomas after being hit by 2 catagory 5 hurricanes was a very humbling experience. It was a place of raw beauty even amongst the heavy destruction and piles of trash. The majority of the island is still without power and will be until after the new year. The people were very warm and full of life despite the previous tragedies. With only a generator n some reggae music these people were perfect examples of how to focus on the finer things in life. It makes me wonder, had my parentals moved to the virgin islands when they planned, how life would have been?
