To the Editor,
I have always felt blessed beyond belief but in the last month, I’ve had extra time to realize my amazing fortune. Since Hurricane Florence, much of my extra time has been spent behind the wheel in attempt to get from Point A to Point B.
However, I am lucky enough that my points have been safe and dry unlike many who live in Horry County.
Once Horry County Schools resumed, I’ve been driving my daughter one mile from home to Conway Elementary, which on average takes 12-15 minutes one-way. When we round the corner to the drop-off line, it is as if I am driving backwards through the Wizard of Oz. The corner before we turn is sunny, colorful and beautiful which is quickly met by a very drab black and white scene where waters from Florence have flooded homes and yards.
Continued thoughts and prayers for those living in the black and white. May the yellow brick road soon meet your doorstep.
