Bloomsburg: One Week Later

Bloomsburg: One Week Later

I have so much to say about what I continue to see in Bloomsburg, PA but I will leave that for tomorrow after I’ve had time to properly reflect. For now I wanted to share another set of photos I took while making a quick trip into to town to take supplies. I wish I could say it looks remarkably better, but I cannot. Progress has been made, but it is still a very difficult sight. I talked to several residents, especially in the west end of town, and people are very tired and weary of the thought of dealing with another flood like this. Still so much kindness everywhere I looked — people helping each other in terribly filthy and dangerous conditions. I wish I could do more. I did do a few personal item drops and delivered a huge haul of cleaning supplies my wife, Kristin collected from friends in State College. From what I am hearing, AGAPE will put them to great use … the help they are providing (along with so many others) is inspiring. Please consider giving more to our town if you can — it is in need. And if you can’t do that, please take a look at the pictures and help us spread the word of what is happening. My last set of photos had nearly 110,000 views last week … I can’t even tell you how many people have said to me that they wouldn’t have know what was happening in town without those photos and the Facebook group that has been created. Have a look …
