After Superstorm Sandy hit the east coast, I volunteered to help with clean-up. I stayed with a woman there, Patricia Dresch, who lost her daughter, husband and home during the storm. She herself was washed out to sea and back and was injured in the process. Pat teaches Sunday school at Our Lady of Perpetual Help on Staten Island; the parish was housing us both. I witnessed so many kind acts towards her. Strangers sent donations of money, new clothing, housewares and other thnigs needed to start a new home. As an alum of Aquin, I wanted to share this story with my community and say that I am grateful every day for all that I have.
