This image of a man saving his cats is NOT from Hurricane Sandy. It is a reminder, however, that material possessions are just that, material possessions. I know it seems rough for some of you right now. It’s depressing and downright frightening. A lot of people who live is the areas that were hit the hardest by Hurricane Sandy did not have flood insurance. How do you pick up your life and start over? Where do you even begin? Most of us just lost possessions, despite their value, they are just things. I’m sure that plenty of it was irreplaceable. Unfortunately, you cannot change the past. This image moves me for a few reasons. Look at the man in the background. His arms are filled with clothes, just stuff. The man in the front is working hard to save his two cats. Cats hate to be carried, and most of them are terrified of water. I can’t imagine how hard it was to carry both of them to safety. When faced with a natural disaster, belongings are just stuff. You can get more stuff. The things that are one of a kind or irreplaceable, unfortunately, you will have to count your losses. Lives can not be replaced. Lives are what matter. Things like Hurricane Sandy really help to put that into perspective. It’s a rough way to do so, it’s a hell of a wake-up call, but all the same, no matter how rough it gets, remember that lives cannot be bought.

Luckily for us in Sussex County, Delaware, we weren’t hit as hard as New York and New Jersey. So far, we have no loss of life. There is a lot of property damage, but all of that can be replaced.

We had some guy come up to us as we were taking pictures. He started yelling at us because we were, in fact, taking pictures. His house is flooded. Instead of being upset at Hurricane Sandy, he got mad at us. I get his anger, but it seems to me that he shouldn’t take his anger out on photographers.
