Inspiration after Tragedy

hurricaneWhen tragedy hits, one has a choice of reaction, as with most situations:  fight or flight.  Give up or not only carry on, but actually be an inspiration to others.  Greater Hartford’s “Hineni” program will be one way of fighting against tragedy.

The community is preparing this program for October 4.  Hineni in Hebrew means “Here I Am” and the idea is, according to VP of Development at the Foundation, Rachel Berezin to: “Tell three stories of disasters and how the federation system is able to support when disaster strikes.” The event will be the kickstart to the foundation’s annual fundraising event.

Tragedies that will be discussed are both manmade and natural, such as those impacted by  Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School  mass shooting, as well as efforts being made to resettle Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Harvey displaced families.
