There wasn't too much to smile about on this trip. The hurricane left Jace's house and the neighborhood he grew up in, destroyed. As water filled the house, Jace and his family were forced to swim to the roof, hanging on to each other so no one would be swept away. They huddled together on the roof for 5 hours until a helicopter and boats saved their family. This family lost everything. I thought bringing Jace new clothes, shoes, etc. and helping clean up some of the wreckage would be a big help, but when seeing what this family is up against I felt truly over-matched.
