"Lights Out" Benefit photograph from Logan Hicks for Hurricane Sandy victims
Hurricane Sandy has destroyed entire towns and families in the tri-state New York area. While my own family and belongings escaped any real damage, many were not as fortunate. As we came through the hurricane, I thought 'that wasn't so bad' - and in my neighborhood, it wasn't. Then the news channels started to parade the misery of communities like Staten Island and Breezy Point across the screen. They were decimated. Entire houses washed away, lives lost, and cherished possessions destroyed.
