Light following the darkness. You’ve seen it on TV – it’s even worse firsthand – it is shocking and heartbreaking and yet amazing when you see neighbors and strangers coming together in ways you never thought possible. People who’ve lost EVERYTHING still smiling and lending a hand to one another. People traveling great distances to offer anything from financial support to a warm meal, all to someone they’ve never met before.
The spirit of the Florida Panhandle is shining bright. It will take time but the communities of Panama City, Lynn Haven, Mexico Beach, Port St. Joe and many more will return stronger than ever, especially with the generous support of our friends and neighbors near and far. We’ve collected some of this past week’s most positive moments from communities where fellowship and gratitude are leading the way. The photos shown vary from in-house relief efforts to 30A neighbors, businesses and organizations focused on bringing comfort and joy to those without. We are all united with one goal, to bring relief and hope to all affected by Hurricane Michael.
