Hurricane Michael
Hurricane MichaelI’ve started and deleted this post so many times I’ve lost count. I’m struggling with words and how I can convey my emotions, tell this story, and hopefully bring attention to what’s happening in Panama City and other affected cities.This is Dexter.I met Dexter and his lovely wife driving through a neighborhood just north of Tyndall. I saw them standing in the ruins trying to figure out what to do with the ruble that was once their home. So I decided to get out and help. I brought them supplies and introduced them to my wife and cousin. We immediately put gloves on and started to help. They didn’t know us and we didn’t know them but there was no question on what needed to be done.As we got started I asked Dexter to tell me his story. They rode out the storm and unfortunately took a direct hit. The north and south eye wall tore through their neighborhood. Walking into their home it’s a wonder how anyone survived. So I asked that exact question, “Dexter, how did you survive?”. They stayed in the closet and held the door shut so they wouldn’t get sucked out. His arm is still in pain from holding the door for several hours as the roof and rooms collapsed around them. Not knowing when it would end he held on for dear life, literally. But there’s one part of the story Dexter didn’t share.If you’ve ever been in a storm like this you know the sounds that come with it. Wind, destruction, and even explosions. Yes, explosions. Dexter is a Veteran who suffers from PTSD. His lovely wife pulled me to the side and told me the true experience of the storm. It was a war in Dexter’s mind. He was struggling to survive physically and mentally. And after it was all over, he steps outside only to find complete destruction. Just imagine what that might be like. It’s a reality he left behind years ago only to return in a different form long after the wars.He’s now 63 years old working on base. They’ve lived in this house since 1983 and and just like that it’s all gone. He’s not sure if he has a job anymore and what he’ll do in the coming months. Rebuild? Retire? Move away? His family is now forced to restart and figure out where the starting line is. All they know, it’s in the middle of those bricks that was once his fortress, shelter, home.Dexter was a blessing to me. I’m so thankful I found him amongst all this chaos. This is just one story... just one. And I hope it changes you like it changed me.
