Have hope that things are going to get better.

We see your devastation and we really want to help. What happened to you guys was absolutely terrible and no one should have to go through that. We’re with you in our prayers.

Thomas Nagle, sophomore
St. Francis Prep H.S.

I have family that’s in Puerto Rico. My cousin had to move in with some of my family in California to go to school. Stay strong, you can do it. Puerto Ricans are tough. I’m Puerto Rican so I know we can do it.

Kelly Ke, freshman
St. Francis Prep H.S.

We’re all here to help you. We hope that you get through this.
