It's been close to two months now since Hurricane Maria obliterated Puerto Rico.
You've heard about the homes that were leveled, the schools that were closed, the jobs that have been lost, and the churches that have been destroyed. That's not even considering the challenges still facing those who have no electricity and no safe drinking water. Life there is hard for so many, and recovery is not coming quickly.
