    Is there anything you're doing today to be a part of this? It's interesting to see how businesses across America are being respectful, and even airforce planes will be flying over a Dodgers game tonight. It's sometimes just important to pause and take a moment of silence.

      I spent the day with Jersey Cares in Ocean County, NJ...I spent time with them in their volunteer center and then went and visited with two homeowners who were impacted by Superstorm Sandy. We heard their stories as teams worked to address some their outstanding unmet needs.

      It was a good day and good to see the progress being made in these communities along the shore, there is still much to be done but recovery takes time.

        Cool. Thanks for sharing. What did you help the homeowners with?

          Because today is today and the anniversary of Sandy is on the horizon, there were a lot of emotions...we mainly sat and listened as homeowners and volunteers talked through their experiences of 9/11 and how the strength they gained from dealing with that helped them cope with Sandy. While a lot of sadness and grief was shared, I think we all left feeling hopeful which is ultimately what service is about...providing hope and reminding people that they are not forgotten.
