Hurricane Sandy was devastating to coastal families on Staten Island. Lives were lost, homes destroyed and victims waited for relief. Insurance companies let down policy holders, displaced residents were not given even the luxury of FEMA trailers to live in until their homes can be fixed, and members of congress debated the Sandy relief bill. We have had enough! As we slowly rebuild our lives we want the security of knowing that we will be protected from future storms. We need to replenish the eroded beaches, add wetlands, make homes & buildings stronger and build a sea wall. Everything the experts recommend should be done. It can't all be done by home owners alone who did not get enough money to even rebuild what they had before Sandy. We need the governments help. We pay taxes & our interests are supposed to be represented. Build us a sea wall. It is not impossible!
